Actually, Spring Beauties is another flowering plant that now that I think of it, is probably blooming just up the road.
Here is Trillium grandiflorum, white phase. It can also emerge asÂ a light to medium shade of pink.
About 9:00 of a morning, the light tops the east ridge, sending angled shafts of sunlight through the trees. Branches are still only partially filled outÂ as leaves slowly emerge.
If you keep your eyes open, you can sometimes find one of those beams of light from 90 million miles away where itÂ falls just so, onto and at times, through the pedals of a wildflower, Â the unlit background framing the bloom in black.
I like that.
