Spring this year was short, and so was the wildflower season.
This post is dedicated to the largest trillium in the state, the trillium grandiflorum. It is not particularly rare, but the large white flower petals whither quickly, and is a favorite food of the abundant deer population.
Both the petals and leaves are deeply veined. The flower sits on a stem above the leaves, in contrast to the drooping trillium where it drops down below the leaves.
One of the woodland trails in Turkey Run State Park has them usually in abundance, but only this year I saw them in their prime time.
