Gazing from above

ABG toadshade
ABG tulip orange

The BotGarden’s featured displays these days are orchids, all indoors, of course. On today’s visit, we stuck to the outdoors (mostly), and found lovely beds of tulip-masses, some fully open and some on the cusp of opening….

We also found a few forest natives, like the toadshade/trillium sessile above. The triangular layout of leaves and petals always holds me spellbound the first few times I find Trillium species on display in the spring, because of the balanced asymmetry that creates (to me) an obvious aesthetic.
