Drooping Trilliums In Central Ohio

This post is pretty much just about trilliums seen this spring in central Ohio. I particular Drooping Trilliums as they aren’t seen as often as their Large-flowered cousins. Perhaps because of a longer and colder than normal winter it’s been a very good year for spring wildflowers. Often seen while looking for migrating warblers or other wildlife, it’s always a treat. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Great shots of the trillium! I didn’t know that morels grew that far south. Every spring the woods in northern Michigan are packed with people, many from Ohio, looking for morels.

  2. The trilliums are beautiful there. I know what your wife had to go through to get the excellent shots of the nodding ones because sometimes our purple ones nod too. It isn’t easy!
