Trillium Really Do Change Their Color

_Trillium in Pink

After my last post my brother Chris, while mentioning that Trillium was one of his favorite flowers, also reminded me that it also changes its color to pink as it ages.   So I headed back to the forest ridge to see if there were any pink Trillium.  Most were still in their white stage, but there were also a few that were “in the pink.”   This image is one of them.  These are beautiful flowers, and in this image you really can see the “Tri” in Trillium.  Every component of this flower is in threes or some factor of three.  Nature is a wonderful designer; simple yet elegant.

This one’s for you Chris!
