Red trillium

It's early spring, and that means these are out.  I don't know why, but the red trillium always make me happy.  They don't flower very long and they don't smell very good, but still, they sure are beautiful.  Three leaves, three petals, one flower.

  1. A well-named harbinger of spring. I have never seen one before. Thank you.

  2. A fantastic plant I think I've never seen before.

  3. Have seen plants like these with different coloured flowers but didn't know the name.

  4. In a week, the flowers will be gone. The plant is not very tall, and will blend in with all of the other greenery on the forest floor. It's not easy to spot them unless you know what you're looking for, and the flowers are only out for a few weeks in early spring when few people are out walking.

  5. I lived in Ontario, Canada for over 20 years. White trillium is Ontario's official flower. I didn't know that there are red trillium flowers.
