“Morning Trout Lilies” – Stouffville Reservoir

“Morning Trout Lillies” - Stouffville Reservoir

What the heck, two posts in a day isn’t so bad, is it? After all, I missed Friday. I could not resist posting this photo of the Trout Lilies I mentioned on my previous post. There’s a regular cluster I go to every year and they never disappoint. It was earlier in the morning and they are not quite open yet. Give it a few hours and there will be several delicate bell-shaped flowers showing.

I’m hoping to get out again tomorrow to capture them in bloom and will share that image too.

This is one of my favourite times of year. Following the cycles of the plants and the emerging growth fascinates me. Out of dead-looking ground and grey branches come perfectly formed and fresh growth, year after year.
