trillium

this shy beauty hides in the vermont woods...to find her is a small triumph.
to harass her in any way is against the law.

This beauty is a present for me - a present from nature ... wonderfully . Thanks for this picture

Fascinating flower...I researched it and discovered that it's not only fragile but it may take many years for a picked plant to recover. Certainly very delicate. and I'm glad that it's unlawful in many states for it to be picked or removed.

Fragile indeed. Is that snow or sunlight on the leaf? Almost looks like a dab of snow.

pure sunlight, birdman...the snow down in our neck of the woods is entirely gone. there, too?

Sharon Creech said...

What a treasure you found in the woods, brattcat. What a deep, rich color. I love that it's protected.

Sharon said...

What a beautiful little flower. I love the deep red color. It's fun seeing flowers that I would never see in my neck of the woods!

Marie-Noyale said...

Beautiful warm red color.
I had never heard about it.
Thank God you had your camera handy!!

Jacob said...

What is she called? It looks like some exotic plant from the South Seas!

Re your question on Florida Fotos...I don't know if anyone has been attacked by alligators at Rainbow Springs, but it has happened at other springs in Florida!

Wonderful photo!

Sunny said...

A Trillium? is that more than a millium?
Such a lovely, delicate flower, I don't think I've ever seen one I must explore the woodlands.

I have a beloved author in Oregon who tells me about her trilliums (trillia?). Now I see why.

Yvi said...

Very beautiful!

I don't know a damn thing about flowers, having grown up in the concrete jungle. This, however, is gorgeous.

Tash said...

I like the name. I have not heard of this flower or it's (gratefully so) protected status. Beauty of a photo of this 'shy' lovely.

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful flower and plant. We have them out here too and with the same restrictions. Leave them alone--just enjoy their beauty. MB

Amin said...

I think I have not seen before it.

Trillian said...

I really love this flower!

Hilda said...

I had never heard of Trillium before and just had to read about it. It's a fascinating plant and so fragile. So it is also protected in Vermont?

I love the deep red color of this one you found.

JM said...

I did a search on trillium but I think I've never seen one. Judjing from what you said it must be one more beautiful endangered species...
