We had a bit of rain yesterday, sometimes a drizzle and others a shower, and in the morning I headed out hoping to find a few Painted Trilliums-Trillium undulatum to marvel at and photograph.
One of the pleasures in observing these is the variation from plant to plant. Some times the petals and leaves line up with each other and sometimes not. The undulations for which the plant gets its name can be strong or slight, at the very tip of the petal or the entire length. The surface can be more flat or curved, longer or more blunt. And sometimes the leaves have more rain drops.
Chances are good that I just might post another or two in the coming days and nearby the Lady’s Slippers are starting to bud up.
