Spring Magic

Share it!   

This post isn’t about anything sugar-related, but the discovery I made today was just so sweet to me, that I have to share it with you!

While hiking in the forests near my home, I came upon a fork in the path…

I’m so glad I went to the right, because that path took me to this glorious scene:

A blanket of white trilliums covering the entire hillside for as far as the eye could see!

Here’s a close-up of the trillium, the provincial flower of Ontario, Canada.

I’d love to hear about or see pics of flowers/gardens/nature near you (real or sugar!), if you’d like to share in the comment section below or in my facebook group here.

A quick side note as well; I’m working on my KopyKake tutorial which will be ready by the end of May.

Happy Spring to you!

xo,

Marian

p.s.  An update to this post – Thank you for sending me your flower pics!  Thought I’d share a few of the beautiful gardens from around the globe:

Sherry of Enchanted Cakes shared some pics of her home garden, which certainly looks enchanting to me!

Leonie from Australia shared a photo of her moon flower, which only comes out around full moon time at night and lasts one night!  She explained that she often misses them but they have a beautiful perfume and are a gorgeous flower with various petals.

Thanks to Angela for sending me the pic above from the LA Arboretum’s Garden Show!

    When you see Trillium, it is time to collect wood garlic!! It taste more like a scallion… I replace onion and garlic with wood garlic, in all my meal.

    Do you got any in your region?

    Marian, What a beautiful scene. We have nothing like this beauty in Southern California. We’ve got the beach, but this spot looks magical!

    Those are fabulous- I love that there is a hillside for them to cover! We have rolling ground here in south central Texas- so check out our fields of bluebonnets in our post on http://www.barnchicks.us – Hope they will make you smile as yours did for me!

    I had a similar sensation some days ago, while I was biking near my house, in Cobeña (Madrid). We have such a lovely countryside so near! It’s amazing, almost magical. I’ll take a photo next time and try to send you.

    Your web is fantastic. I’d posted your recipe of royal icing in my blog (linking yours), I loved it!
