I have a new friend under the fig tree, Sweet Betsy, Trillium cuneatum.
It was sent to me by a fellow blogger, Marian St. Claire of Hortitopia.
I am happy to report that is blooming and spreading.
I learned about this plant at a writer’s workshop
when the two women at my table learned I was a garden blogger,
they both said their favorite flower was ‘Sweet Betsy’.
I was embarrassed to confess that I had never heard of Sweet Betsy.
I shared this story with Marian. She kindly shipped one to me.
That’s how we plant folks are.
I love Sweet Betsy so much I may write a song about her.
