Meandering with camera…
Things I will miss when the old house sells…Things I will NOT miss…These fragments I have shored against my ruins
― T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land and Other Poems
There she is, lovely in three-ness! (But not the oak.)
Yes, not so much the oak. There is an elegant loveliness to the three-ness (I like that) Trillium.
Oh I love Trillium too…I hope you can transplant some!
Me, too… on both counts.
No, I wouldn’t miss the poison oak either. The trillium, though, I’d find a way to take some with me if I could. It’s beautiful.
I love the Trilliums. I will attempt to move one if I can… I don’t think they take kindly to a change of location though… not so sure about that.
Have you found a house yet Gunta? It sad to move on sometimes but it’ll be for the best I’m sure..! 🙂
Sorry to give the wrong impression, but I’m selling a house I was renting. I already made the move nearly five years ago. I look forward to not having to deal with the rental situation.
It is all change for you Gunta! We luckily don’t have poison oak or ivy. The trillium is gorgeous.
Actually, most of the change took place nearly five years ago. I just recently decided I didn’t want to deal with renting the old house and am getting it shined up to sell.
Moving is so hard. For so many reasons. If you can take some of the trillium, I would. It’s lovely. Don’t think I’ve ever seen it before.
Sorry to give the wrong impression, but I’m selling a house I had rented. I already made the move nearly five years ago. I look forward not having to deal with the rental situation. I’ll have to see if I can figure out how to do a “division” to plant at my current house. They grow in wooded areas around the west as far as I know. The first one I ever saw in California (in the Sierra foothills) was a gorgeous dark plum shade.
Glad you’re not in the middle of a move. Selling is hassle enough without moving too.
I waited for other comments as I didn’t know what the plants are. Now I understand and would heartily agree. We have stinging nettles here which look a little different but sure hurt! The trillium is pretty. Moving can sometimes be a strange affair, bringing up a few emotions. Often you can be too busy to really notice them until much later when you finally have some time to sit and think.
Our Poison Oak causes truly intense itching that is literally unbearable, though some folks seem to be immune. Sorry to give the wrong impression, but I’m selling a house I had rented. I already made the move nearly five years ago. I look forward not having to deal with the rental situation.

Yeah, I’d miss the trillium, but not the poison oak.
Can’t imagine anyone missing poison oak! 😉
You could always take some cuttings from them. is that 3-petalled white flower some sort of lily? It’s most unusual.
It’s a wild Trillium (yes, a type of lily) and I understand they don’t transplant well. They may even be endangered. Then again, you had me googling and it looks like you can propagate by division. Hmmm, I’ll have to look into this once the house is ready to list. Thanks for the suggestion.
They’re both new to me…very pretty in the first…and I was going to suggest poison oak for the second…..never had the misfortune of makings its acquaintance.
The flower is a Trillium (they grow wild here) and poison oak it is for the second one. It grows really wild here… 😉 Nasty stuff.
For all people who say “natural” is healthy….introduce them to poison ivy. LOL
Out here it’s poison oak, rather than ivy, but just as nasty.
