Trilliums

No, not trillions but Trilliums. The flower has three green or reddish sepals and usually three petals in shades of red, purple, pink, white, yellow, or green. There are six stamens at the center.

I was checking out one of the photographers on National Geographic who recently liked a photo I’d posted there. I always trace back to those who comment or like my work to see how their portfolio is doing. There are 400 other contributing photographers to choose from.

One of this lady’s photos was of a trillium flower. I commented to her on its beauty and then dug back in my flower archives to see my collection of trillium pictures. They can be seen below. Some were taken at the Oregon Zoo while the rest were photographed during a walk taken in Forest Park in downtown Portland. The paths are lined with thousands of trillium.
