Another shot from our woods (which by the way would make a great spot for a photo session if anyone is interested in booking….  This is Trillium ovatum.  Thanks again to good ol’ Linnaeus for that.  Most people call it Trillium and it holds a special spot in my heart as my dad’s mom was the first to tell me of it’s common name “Wake Robin” and the meaning.  When the flower blooms in the Spring it wakes up the robins (who have been silent all winter).  And they start singing.  And they are, singing now.  Every morning.

  1. Flowers are the jewels in the woods and you do a great job capturing their tone of silence. Thanks!

    • Thank you! It was suggested to me that we look into growing some native plants for use in re-establishing streams and fields in the area. And I do love our woods. Nice and cool, even on a smoking hot summer day!
