Taking (a photo of) Trilliums

Last week I was driving to a writer’s critique group meeting when I nearly drove off the road from gawking at the sight of hundreds of trilliums carpeting the forest floor.

I’ve seen trilliums for many a spring over the years (hey, I even blogged a poem about one a few years ago) but I’ve never myself seen that many together.

So I pulled over and snapped a few photos. It was dusk and I just had my phone so they’re not the best photos, but it was a nice moment made even better because no one in the neighbourhood came out to call me bonkers.

I got back into my car and carried on. I was pleased that I’d taken the time to…well, take a photo of the trilliums (no roses out to smell yet) even though I was a bit late for my meeting.

And at the meeting, Caroline helped me to sort out what I might tackle writing next. If I’m brave enough to take it up, I’ll let you know.
