White Trout Lily, a Magical Wildflower for Spring

A rebirth of a colony of white trout lilies takes over the charred logs on the forest floor.Trout lilies are one of the first wildflowers to announce the arrival of spring in the woodlands.

A wonderful surprise to wake up to this morning. One of my photographs of white trout lily flowers is in the recent issue of Horticulture Magazine.The growth of this colony of trout lily flowers, taken near Tomahawk Slough in Cook County, Illinois, had been aided by recent forest preserve clearing and maintenance.
