When the Douglas Irish bloom in Oregon, spring is really almost here. My second most favorite flower reminds me that eventually it will stop raining, but without the rain, we wouldn't have these beauties. My first favorite flower is the Trillium. Seeing them return every spring always makes me remember how much I missed Oregon while I lived elsewhere. Did you know that if the Trillium is disturbed or picked, it will not bloom again for 7 years?
