These trilliums are from RHS Harlow Carr’s beautiful Spring woodland garden on the hillside behind the stone building used for exhibitions. It’s a little out of the way and I wonder how many visitors have discovered it – I only stumbled on it by mistake. It struck me as being fairly newly planted but if so, they’ve done a great job.
RHS gardens are rightly closed to help protect us, but of all the gardens that are out of reach, this is the one that calls me most plaintively.
I am thankful for what I have, but I would have loved to see how this garden is developing.
While I’m on a roll, I’m adding in a few ‘spare’ trilliums from my files. I’m not sure where the first was taken, but I suspect somewhere in Alabama.
