Painted Trillium

On our last excursion to the beautiful city of Asheville, we stumbled across several wild patches of painted trilliums.

This one was laying near the path, maybe someone had plucked it earlier. Anyhow, a local informed us that they are pretty rare to see in abundance like this, but apparently our timing was just right.  You flower buffs out there would know better than I, but still, pretty neat.

While I’m at it, here are some other fun snaps from the area.

Kiddos playing in the trees like monkeys. Tree climbing is fun no matter the age.

    • Yea, you know, now that you mention it, that is odd. I’m the one that complains about taking pictures. Hmm, that’s weird.

  3. Asheville, NC? The land of waterfalls! We used to live in Greenville and I remember that county and Breford (SP?) below Asheville were the land of waterfalls. It was so many cool places to hike! Great pics!
