About Today’s Photo:
The painted trillium were still in bloom along the Long Trail heading towards Burnt Rock Mountain. This diminutive species of trillium prefer strongly acidic, humus-rich soils and tends to be found in the shade of acid-loving trees such as eastern white pine, red maple, red spruce and balsam fir.
