The good about it is the flora and fauna, right in my very own backyard - ostrich ferns, trout lilies, white trilliums, red trilliums. they are just by the fence, probably escaping from the blades of the lawnmowing guys.
Today, May 14th 2012, a day after mothers day, i saw them blooming - well maybe couple of days now, but I did not notice. The wiki facts are listed below and here are the pictures I've taken this morning.

Trillium erectum, also known as Wake-robin, red trillium, purple trillium, Beth root or Stinking Benjamin, is a spring-flowering perennial plant native to the east and north-eastern areas of North America. The flowers are a deep red colour, and the plant takes its name Wake-robin by analogy with the Robin, which has a red breast that heralds spring.
Trillium grandiflorum, commonly known as white trillium, great white trillium, white wake-robin, or in French as trille blanc, is a perennial monocotyledonous plant in the lily family
