Western North Carolina Trillium

Don't they look like happy little dragons? Or maybe a dancer twirling her skirt?

Such emotional flowers with so much character, you pretty much can see into your own soul by guessing what you think they are thinking. (Just like most of the things we interpret in life...)
I found ones with white flowers and ones with violet/maroon colored flowers! Have ya'll seen these bloom yet at ya house?

PS- If you are local to Western North Carolina, there is an herb festival every year in Asheville, NC that sells all sorts of native plants for your garden, including the trillium pictured here!

"The WNC Chapter of the NC Herb Association represents the incredibly wide variety of herbalists and herb businesses in North Carolina: herb growers and vendors, natural gardening and landscaping specialists, and makers of herbal ointments, balms, soaps, teas, medicines, and other products. We hope you’ll join us and more than 25,000 other herb lovers when we celebrate our 21st annual Asheville Herb Festival April 30th, May 1st and 2nd, 2010, at the WNC Farmers Market." :)
