What Wildflower Wednesday

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening (pick your appropriate time zone), and hi y’all!  Today is Wednesday and I was trying to think of something to go with the W in Wednesday to go with the post for today.  Some potentials were: wacky, woodland, weird, wonderful, wonky, wild, wooly, wistful, wicked, and wocka wocka Wednesday.  Sorry, that last one was me having a Muppet Show moment.  None of those really hit me not to mention I couldn’t come up with any matching images so I returned to yesterdays post and realized that I had a wildflower that I thought I had the name for but alas…I don’t!  Drat!!

So here we go again with what is it wildflower time.  The really frustrating part of this is that this flower was one of the images of “park life” posted on the walls in the ranger station, but did it have a name posted with it? Noooooooooo!  I must have a few words with them about that when I return.  Not very sporting of them to do such a thing.  Any ideas anyone?

    I think that might be trillium, Teri, and that’s a great photo. Pretty, aren’t they?

    John beat me to it. Yep, it is trillium. Great shot.

    I have to agree…it sure looks like a trillium to me too. Great photo!

  4. I gotta say trillium too!

  5. And.. now I know what trillium is too! I’m impressed as well, rather disappointed that I wouldn’t know any of these! I must have slept through biology class, lol!

    • Hey! Don’t feel bad about it because I have never seen this flower before until just the other day’s walk in the park. We did more dissecting things in my biology class than learning types of plants. (ick) 🙂

  6. I have a special love for trilliums because not only are they native to Western Washington like me and also such very pretty flowers in their pristine, clean-lined way, but I associate them, too, with my grandfather since Mom’s trilliums all were dug from the wooded parts of Gramps’s property many years ago.
