Trillium

"The Amen of nature is always a flower."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

For me, there is something so spiritual about trillium. The purity of its trinity of petals is naturally symbolic, as is its renaissance each spring. Yet, like faith, the trillium is fragile and requires careful consideration. It must be protected from forces that endanger its roots, but when nurtured, its incomparable beauty thrives.
