Trilliums have begun to bloom in the woods. This is a sure sign of spring. Although the farmer has told the children to not pick woodland flowers (they do not last long inside, and we love to see them on our walks) my 10 year old, Evangeline, picked me a bouquet. I think she is as excited for warm weather and blooming flowers as I am. She picked them on Monday and they are already wilting.We are still experiencing heavy rains, and the ground is saturated with water. Muddy and squelchy!
