Decided to stay home and work on more old files. These red trilliums should be coming out now, this was on March 31, 2012.
I decided that the bud really needed to be the star but like the leaf texture so tried to have them support each other in appeal. While this is a lovely flower in color, I like the greater emphasis on texture and form that black and white provide.
I am not sure what background you see when you click the image. I see a black background and this is even better viewed that way if you care to see.
