About Today’s Photo:
Large-flowered Trillium (a.k.a. White Wake Robin) blooms in rich lime soils in our region especially near Lake Champlain. There’s a stretch along the Monkton Ridge Road that has several batches and they’re in full bloom now. The new flowers are crisp white and slowly take on a pinkish hue as the flowers age. The flowers can remain open for two to three weeks!
