Chickamauga redux


As near as I can tell: Trillium catesbaei, with several common names including Bashful Wakerobin.

We returned to northwest GA and redid the damp hike of late March. Despite light rainfall in the previous 24 hrs, we found the creeks and streamlets very easy to cross, and the hike delightful, colorful, actually, with carpets of new plants, mostly wildflowers and (sigh) poison ivy. I may be exaggerating a bit, however.

    Thanks for the trillium picture! We had them in Ashland and in Boone, and I miss these heralds of spring. It helped my hard-ish day (can any other fellowships turn me down? Dear god) be better. Now off to grade (she says, through gritted teeth). Semester over soon…semester over soon…semester over soon

    One o’ these days, I’ll have to post the story of The Commander’s adventures as the Trillium Bandit.
