Painted Trillium

Painted Trillium: Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, Wells, Maine, USA — It used to be, not so many years ago, that the Trilliums were bloomed and gone before the first Lady Slipper Orchid was in full bloom…but these past few years they have bloomed together…and both seem to be blooming later. Maybe I am misremembering, and certainly my sample is too small to draw any conclusions. All I know is that after several trips to find them at Rachel Carson, I was happy to see them blooming near the Lady Slippers. Painted is the only Trillium we have here in Southern Maine, or at least the only one I have found.
