Three Cheers for Trillium

These images were taken between April 15 and April 19, 2010. Many of these images are of Trillium, a beautiful wildflower that has a noticeable affection to the number three. There are usually three petals, and three leaves on this wildflowers. Several other wildflowers spice up the image mix.

A group of Bluets (Houstonia caerulea). Always a pleasure to see, but difficult to photograph due to their petite size and susceptibility to movement in the wind.

This wildflower is called Epimedium, also known as Barrenwort and Horny Goat Weed. It is the more rare red colored Epimedium.

This is also Epimedium, however in the more common green and yellow colors.

A Tiger Swallowtail butterfly pays due diligence to an Azelia in a stiff breeze.

A Buttercup (Ranunculus acris) makes an early Spring appearance.

Now starts the march of the Trilliums (Trillium grandiflorum).

Another Trillium, but is aging.
