Purple Trillium


I found this flower along the riverbank leading to the waterfall. After a google search, I came up with three common names, Stinking Benjamin, Purple Trillium and Wake Robin. The description says is has an unpleasant odor. I guess I didn't get close enough to attest to this...thankfully.
It is very pretty and unique looking.

Who came up with the names of flowers? How funny. I'm trying to remember the last time I smelled a flower and it smelled bad. How curious. :) Pretty though.

I like the way the colour of the flower is mirrored in the background.
How nice to hear the sound of a waterfall from your cabin.
