{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Bear’s Paw Fern – Blue Star Variety (Phlebodium aureum ‘Blue Star’)

Posted on: January 7th, 2015 by Trillium Art

The decorations are all away, the fir tree’s needles are swept up and a fresh page on the calendar is on the fridge. For the first time in three years, I am not enrolled in any courses. I have finished the requirements for the online certificate of Urban Sustainable Agriculture Certificate from the University of […]

Thank You!

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Pauluskerk’s Livingstone Daisy (Dorotheanthus ‘Variegated’)

Posted on: November 26th, 2014 by Trillium Art

Creating a Fairy Garden is a lot of fun. It allows me to really focus on the details of a miniature garden and develop a story for each container. The garden in the spotlight today has a Holiday theme with the Livingstone Daisy as the feature plant. The full name is Pauluskerk’s Livingstone Daisy and […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

Posted on: November 20th, 2014 by Trillium Art

The arrival of the first seed catalogue in the mail last week coincided with our first dusting of snow. And if I wasn’t convinced…the first snowday for my sweet pea was yesterday. Suddenly she saw a different side of being a new bus student. The beginnings of a fort in our backyard are the fruits […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Baby Boo Pumpkins (Cucurbita)

Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by Trillium Art

Welcome to the unofficial pumpkin week at Trillium Art! The fall season seems to be all about the pumpkins (and costumes, and candy) leading up to the ghoulish night of Halloween. To add to the ‘ghostly’ nature of the season, I’ve chosen Baby Boo Pumpkins for today’s feature. I love these little guys and have […]

Every morning after my Sweet Pea boards the school bus, my furry friend and I take a walk to the end of the street to the Grand River Arboretum. It is a quiet, magical place during this time of day and I have enjoyed watching the coming of Autumn in the morning mists, fall rains […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Butter-and-Eggs (Linaria)

Posted on: October 8th, 2014 by Trillium Art

I am not ready to let go of bright, summery flowers just yet. So far, we have not had a hard ‘killing-frost’ and as a result, we are still enjoying many flowering plants in our gardens and through the countryside. This cute perennial plant was observed along one of our many trails. My four-legged companion […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Common Milkweed (Asclepias)

Posted on: October 1st, 2014 by Trillium Art

Today’s discussion about the Common Milkweed could continue as a small book or at the very least a very long blog post! There is much to say about this native perennial including the dependence of Monarch Butterflies. In order to keep todays post on the shorter side, let’s explore some of the highlights of this […]
