I couldn’t do Wordless because I do want to say a bit. This is probably my favorite of all my flower images. Of course, it is also my favorite flower. For years it was part of my Gravatar but I recently decided to use a smiley instead. 🙂 Every Spring I anticipate finding my first Painted Trillium, along with Lady’s Slippers and other ephemerals. They are probably my most posted subject on the blog. So much so that I purchased a bunch of seeds from a New England seed company, Vermont Wildflowers, and just spread them in our little woods where my White Trillium and Yellow Lady’s Slippers thrived last year. I am filled with hope that I will now just be able to walk out our back door to see, and photograph, the most beautiful of Spring Flowers…in my opinion, of course.
Made 10 years ago, I’ve shared this image in the past both like this, although I did do a little slight tweaking to it last night, and in black and white as well. Black and White seems an odd conversion for such a lovely flower but it worked. If you are curious, as many of you and I were not acquainted yet, here’s a post with two in monochrome. My friend Andrew did end up with both color and black and white on his wall in Hong Kong. 🙂
And the title, yes, a nod to Mr. Peabody. 🙂
