Purple trillium in bloom

Purple trillium 39152In the heart of Minneapolis is a hidden garden gem — the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden.  With fifteen acres of woodland, wetland, and prairie, it is the oldest public wildflower garden in the nation.  The garden was established in 1907  by botanist Eloise Butler and the Minneapolis Parks Board.  We spent a delightful early Saturday morning at the garden.  These purple trilliums were blooming profusely, along with marsh marigolds, hepatica, anemones, two-leaved toothwart, and trout lilies.
