Trillium? Trilliums? Maybe even Trillia?
I think we need Miss Grundy to figure the plural of Ontario’s provincial flower.
But after the late winter and early spring we’ve had – I tell you, 2020 is a year I’ll be glad to see out the front door come Jan. 1 – the trilliums are in bloom at Springwater Forest at Springwater Conservation Area east of St. Thomas.
With no leaf on trees to shade, it was warm enough under Sunday’s midday sun to have to shed your jacket. There even were shorts and sandals on the pathways thru the preserve. But folks out for a walk were careful to distance. And where the trail was narrow, we all stopped and waited for each other to pass. And people smiled and said hello. And thank you. And it was all very polite and all very civilized – maybe our new-normal way of Slow Life is at least one good thing to come from COVID-19. (The other being the increasing likelihood that Donald Trump will not win re-election. But that’s talk for another time.)
