Thinking spring - Large-flowered Trillium

This photograph of Large-flowered Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) was taken April 2012 at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.  There is an abandoned farm just south of Empire that is part of the park.  The path back to this farm is lined on both sides by expanses of woodland wildflowers including thousands of trillium.  These two plants were growing up through a cut in a log that was half-embedded in the soil.  Their stems managed to snake up through the cut in the log, leaving this interesting picture that looks like it was arranged for the camera.
