Trillium Season!

I took the dogs for a walk in the woods. It’s been our first sunny day in awhile and the trillium are in full bloom. I was able to get a few neat pictures. Here’s a pink painted trillium.

Reflections in the pond. I think this photo looks like an abstract painting. I was walking near the water and heard a big “kersplash!” and saw a redtail hawk swooping over the water. He was trying to nab one of a pair of ducks — or maybe their ducklings? — that were nesting there. Of course, it all happened too fast to have the camera ready.

I really like the dramatic backlighting in this one!

Here’s a trillium with some groovy colorful toadstools.

I just love this time of year!

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!

    Thank you Nancy, for the flowers. It is very late & I checked some blogs to settle down. I had to have my oldest horse euthanized today. A very long day, and the trilliums on your blog gave me an idea for a marker. This was my first time, and it has been a test of strength. A very tired worn out Heather ( an Irish flower)

    Aw, so sorry to hear this, Heather. It is tough to lose an old friend. I’m glad the timing was right for me to post the trillium. I hope that the coming summer will bring you some comfort.
