Wild Ginger

Is a rare gift in the woodland area of my gardens.  It shows up suddenly.  Blooms for scarcely a week.  Is easily missed if I am distracted or my hunt's timing for its delicate white blossom and unfurling leaves is off by even a few days.  I introduced it 15 years ago, and wondered for sometime where it went--doubtless due to a single bloom or two escaping my attention.  Now, in a colony of a dozen or more rhizomes, it is easier to catch... to enjoy!
