"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night." ~Rainer Maria Rilke
Trillium sulcatum forma albolutescens
The trillium are blooming on the mountain. The few we have around the lodge are coming to life. Chris and I hiked down Trillium trail a little way and found a ton of trillium in full bloom. It is invigorating to see the shrubs and trees coming to life on the top. The warm days of summer are so close.
