Our (pink?) trilliums

13 Aug

OK, so how do you find out what flowers are growing on the property when you aren’t there all the time?  The best way is to find one of Dad’s lists – I’m working on that.  But I also found this picture taken at the cottage.

PINK TRILLIUM

This picture looks like it might have been taken in the gully closest to the cottage – the one with a bit of open grass , birches by the road and glorious dappled light in the morning.  I’ll take the picture along when I go in September and check.

When I saw the picture, I thought – aren’t trilliums either red or white … I didn’t know they are pink too??  apparently, they aren’t.  White trilliums turn pink as they die.
