Trillium Blooming

White trillium wildflowerThis gorgeous white wildflower is a trillium. How could I have lived in northern Minnesota for so long and never before have seen one of these in bloom? Apparently they bloom only for a short time in early spring. They are abundant now. I found these in the woods on the side of a country road near my home.

Trillim leaves come in sets of 3.Both the trillium’s leaves and petals come in sets of three’s. White is the most common color, but they can be found in red and other colors.

Several trillium wildflowers in bloom in a wooded area.Don’t miss them. They won’t be around for long.
