They survived!

The day after we saw snow trilliums blooming at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden, (see our post on April 8, 2019) a Minnesota April blizzard buried everything under a foot of snow.  As soon as that snow melted and the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden officially reopened, we went back to the Wildflower Garden to see how the snow trilliums had weathered the blizzard.  Still blooming brightly and true to their name, they had survived.  And so did we. Visit the garden in the next week or so and you can see these rare, endangered, ephemeral wildflowers, before they disappear completely until next year!
