May Flowers: White Trillium

White Trillium are in full bloom throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.  Last weekend I saw them carpeting the hillsides in the Laurel Highlands at Indian Creek and at Wolf Creek Narrows near Slippery Rock. 

Trillium used to be quite plentiful at the Trillium Trail in Fox Chapel until the deer ate all the wildflowers.  Fox Chapel fenced the trail a few years ago and the flowers made a comeback.  Here are some Dianne Machesney found there last weekend.

Such beauty!

    The Trillium Trails are beautiful now – I was looking at them last weekend. Flowers everywhere :)
