  1. How handy to have these in your back yard.

    A superb composition, Steve! I like the contrast that the dark background provides for the white trillium.

  5. Beautiful. The translucency of the petals, especially, makes this a lingering image.

    Remind me, please – the wild spot features wild Trillium or did Marybeth plant some? I seem to remember you had some planted but no, maybe that was something else, something in a barrel….at any rate, that is one happy-looking flower!

    • All my doing, Lynn. Mary Beth has her hands full with the vegetable and flower gardens so the woods are all mine. I did plant this one, purchased from a garden shop owned by the New England Wildflower Society, and others are being added. The barrel holds some Fringed and Closed Gentians which I hope flower this year…they are biennials and self-seed. More will be added to that.

        I like the way you divvy up the outdoor chores. Yes, the gentians! They will come later, let’s hope! I have some things in pots, a few from the local Washington Native Plant Society…Twisted Stalk (like Solomon’s seal), another similar plant, and a native Lonicera (honeysuckle). They’re coming up vigorously in pots but the one or two I put in a wooded area were devoured by slugs. Oh well.

      • If I lose plants in the woods around here it is rabbits that are the culprits…occasionally a deer nibbles a bit too. We don’t really have slug problems.

    Is this an older bloom? It looks as though there’s a bit of fading already. The faint brown spots on the petals look like our magnolia blossoms when heat or excessive rain begins to affect them. It certainly isn’t unattractive; what my eye sees as a less-vibrant white goes nicely with the darker throat.

    Beautiful, and so great you don’t need to walk that far to photograph it. I’ve been keeping my eyes open as I hike the local woods for any of the flowers you post. I don’t know that I’ve found any trillium yet, but did stumble upon a number of lady’s slippers today. I was pretty excited, even if the locations made pleasing photographs a challenge. 🙂

    • Yeah, it is handy. 🙂 If all my subjects were in the yard I’d not get much exercise. I am envious that you are seeing lady’s slippers. Ours are still a few weeks away. But you can count on seeing them here. I hope you will share those that you are seeing.
