I had a look at the upper woods near Wilket Creek hoping that the Trilliums might be in flower.
A few Trilliums were in flower!
The word “trillium” is perfect for this wildflower as it has 3 leaves and 3 petals.
At the end of the post, I will identify it.
The feeders in the parking lot always attract birds (and squirrels – I counted 12).
This is the best place to get a close view of the Red-bellied Woodpecker.
The white spots on the leaves resemble water droplets giving the plant its common name of Virginia Waterleaf.
A cousin of mine recently made this:

This is the time we dock the night
Of a whole hour of candlelight;
When song of linnet and thrush is heard—
And love stirs in the heart of a bird. – Katharine Tynan (1861–1931)
