Millions of Trilliums


It's been a dreary week up here in the UP, but we aren't complaining. So many parts of this country are dealing with rain and flooding - including some of our favorite places in Wyoming.


But with the muddy roads and the millions of raindrops that fall and the onslaught of millions of mosquitoes and other bugs whose species I don't know...


...come millions of trilliums.


Most of the ones I found are white, but if you look towards the top of this photo there are a couple of pink ones.




They blanket the woods and the power lines and the roadsides bringing a smile to my face and my heart.

One of my favorite things...

I, too, love trillium! I recently learned that the pink ones are just older, all trillium are white and as they wane they turn light pink to bright magenta just before they die. At least that's true for mountain trillium, I wonder if it's also true for flat-land-ing trills??? :)

You are right! Steve and I have been noticing the change from white, to pink, then a much darker pink. Learn something new everyday! Thanks for commenting! :)
