Happy New Year!

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Trillium Art

Hello again from Trillium Art!  I hope that today’s post finds you thoroughly enjoying the holidays and looking ahead to 2016. Trillium Art is entering the New Year with a new look and lots of new ideas.  Take a moment and poke around the website.  I’m very excited about some of the new features especially […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea)

Posted on: December 4th, 2013 by Trillium Art

Ah, the Christmas tree! So many memories of this holiday time have taken place in the presence of this symbol of Christmas. In our family we have always had a tree, and I have embraced my husband’s family tradition of having a real one in the house. This usually involves an adventure to a tree […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Red Osier Dogwood (Cornus sericea)

Posted on: November 27th, 2013 by Trillium Art

As we drive through our grey and brown landscape, there are occasional hints of colour; the yellow of the Eastern Larch, the greens of the conifers and the red stems of the dogwoods. It is this splash of red colour that people crave when they start their winter decorating around their home. The Red Osier […]

Wintery Landscapes :: Extremes of Weather!

Posted on: February 11th, 2013 by Trillium Art

What a weekend of interesting weather!  We have experienced one extreme to the other.  I have been told, on more than one occasion, that Canadians love to talk about the weather.  I tend to agree.  I think the reason is that our weather is never the same, from one day to the next!  This past […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Poinsettia (Euphorbia)

Posted on: December 12th, 2012 by Trillium Art

Welcome to National Poinsettia Day!  Isn’t it great that it falls on a Wednesday!  This is the perfect topic for today’s post as we celebrate this beautiful plant that many associate with Christmas!  December 12 marks the death of ‘Joel Roberts Poinsett’, an American botanist, physician and the first US Ambassador to Mexico, who in […]

One More Sleep until the Tinseltown Marketplace! (Orangeville)

Posted on: December 7th, 2012 by Trillium Art

As if this holiday season isn’t busy enough, I have found myself wearing different hats in the last few weeks. I have enjoyed working with It’s About Thyme Garden Design and Landscaping during the month of November creating some wonderful winter displays (Yes, I think they are amazing, but hey…I’m biased!).  It’s been a lot […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)

Posted on: December 5th, 2012 by Trillium Art

It may be a bit odd this time of year to be featuring a tree that is found in the south-eastern United States, but I’m sure you have seen bunches of these beautiful dark green, glossy leaves available at garden centres or florists.   Trillium Art is in full winter decor mode and the tips of […]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday :: Crabapple Branches (Malus)

Posted on: November 28th, 2012 by Trillium Art

Trillium Art is in full winter decor mode!  Our focus today is the use of natural berries and fruit in our urns, window boxes and arrangements, more specifically the fruit from the crabapple tree. This photo was taken at the Dufferin Garden Centre last winter, the morning after an ice storm.  As I was slip-sliding […]

Trade Show Inspirations!

Posted on: October 18th, 2012 by Trillium Art

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend Landscape Ontario’s Garden and Floral Expo at the Toronto Congress Centre.  It was a fantastic chance to get away from my desk and rub elbows with suppliers and fellow trades people.  It was great to see many individuals that I know as well as familiar products.  I also […]
