Just like clockwork

I cannot imagine how the clockwork of the universe can exist without a clockmaker.
--Voltaire (1694-1778) French Enlightenment writer, philosopher

Just like clockwork, the trillium have returned to the southern Appalachians this spring. This particular one was found out at Rock Creek Park near Erwin, TN. With their three leaves and three petals, trillium are easy to identify. You'll often spot them growing in damp, shady areas near forest streams.
