This weeks bone china teacup is by Royal Albert in the Trillium pattern.
The pretty footed teacup is in the Montrose shape.
The white trillium became the floral emblem for the Province of Ontario in 1937. It is also an official symbol of the Government of Ontario.
I can remember driving by large roadside patches of trilliums in Northern Ontario when I was a child. They are a protected plant on conservation area land and in provincial parks.
The large white trillium is also the Ohio state wild flower.
