Ontario's Beautiful Flower


We are very fortunate to have a beautiful trail through the woods right near our home.  It was once a railway line, and the township has removed the rails and groomed it into lovely walking trails.  I especially love it this time of year because there are huge patches of trilliums growing along the trail.  This beautiful flower is the provincial foral emblem of Ontario, Canada.

I have edited both images using the same texture (Kim Klassen's kk_stampedright2) and blend modes, etc. Please see the screen shot below for the details of my editing.


Linking up with Our World TuesdayTexture Tuesday, and Sweet Shot Tuesday.

    1. Thanks Earl. Yes, it is amazing to see such large patches of the trilliums on my trail walks with the dog. I'm so lucky to be able to enjoy them.

  11. We will soon be surrounded by these here at home in Northern Minnesota. (Hopefully! we're very behind this spring, they would normally be here by now.) They are some of my favorite of our woodland wildflowers!

    1. They're my favourite too. We're having crazy weather too. In the last couple of weeks we've gone from short weather (hot and humid) to snow showers, back to hot and today they're talking frost warmings again!

  15. Dear Texture Tuesday friends,
    I'm sure you know that Kim's husband is currently undergoing chemotherapy for Leukemia in Winnepeg. I would like for us TT followers to do something special for Kim and John this week. If you are able, could you create a Texture Tuesday image with the theme of HEALING for Kim and John, and post it on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/kimklassencafe this Tuesday? I would love to see a big show of support and love for them.
    Thank you,
