It’s not that easy being a trillium

Deer love them so much they nearly wiped them out a few years ago.

Fox Chapel, PA is one of the few remaining places in the country where a visitor can see trillium, a flower associated with stands of old growth forest.  Peak season is late April to mid-May.  Looks like I just missed it.  But there was more to see than trillium on the Trillium Trail on the short hike I took this afternoon, like Virginia Bluebells and every shade of green.  Music is by Jesse Palter from her album Beginning to See the Light.  The piano section reminds me of Vince Guaraldi, one of my favorite jazz pianists. Enjoy.
