Chasing Light

The word photography means writing with light but most photographers claim they are painting with light!

 

I chase the light in the early mornings in Hidden Villa’s deep woods.

Trillium 延龄草

The Giant Trillium (Trillium chloropetalum) is one of my favorite early spring flowers. A member of the lily family, the trillium has the characteristic trinity of three outer petals, three inner petals, and a three-part stigma; the presence of six stamens helps differentiate it from members of the iris family.

Our Giant Trilliums at Hidden Villa greet me like an old friend, blooming in the same locations every year. Giant Trilliums are also very rare and are almost impossible to find in a home garden, requiring precise growing conditions and taking up to seven years to bloom from seed. Considering its seasonal rarity, the trillium provides me with an annual reminder to appreciate our native woodland’s precious and sometimes fragile beauty – an organism that our wild lands nurture better than my fellow human cultivators.

Come out to Hidden Villa and see if you can catch a glimpse of these specials flowers for yourselves. Please also remember that it is illegal to pick these wildflowers. We want everyone to get a chance to share in their reunion or discovery!
