"Wisconsin ain't got no Stinking Benjamin. We don't need no Stinking Benjamin. I don't have to show you any Stinking Benjamin!"

And now, a word from our sponsor...

In the rare event of an trillium erectum lasting more than 4 hours, seek immediate medical help to avoid long-term injury.

I guess a Erectum cause Trillium at Meadehouse.

Congratulations!

Unpleasant odor appears to be the US Forest Service's euphemism for "the flowers have the smell of rotting meat".

Nature is weird. But humans are another story altogether.

I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woody

You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goody

That thing on the tree reminds me of a vaginal sponge. Eek.

Or Wood Lilly as my mother calls it.

I want to do Fabulous Fabrice really bad and most all of the other Goldman Sachs guys.

They are so hot and cocky and gets me so horny.

"Trillium Erectum."

The official White House flower.

Titus said...

I would be totally willing to pull a Goldman Sachs train.

By the way, my parents have this flower "sprouting" all over their farm. So there Mary.

Now back to Fab=uncut or cut?

Was that taken in the socialist arboretum?

The sponge-looking thing is a morel mushroom, fyi.

These same trillium wild flowers of spring range from north Georgia and across the Appalachians to Canada. Life is very old here.

Don't forget to check for ticks when you get home from wandering the woods. They are most prevalent in brushy or grassy areas (not woods as some believe).

Also, watch out for poison ivy!

Now if you ever run across a Thrillius Erectus, enjoy it but not with the blog. ;-)

We have a patch of those Trilliums in our garden. A co-worker gave me a cutting years ago and they grew (slowly) from that. Around here we call them Chocolate Trillium.
My sweetheart says they fascinate him because they look so unevolved and prehistoric- he always imagines dinosaurs snacking on them in earlier times.

That mushroom really looks uncomfortable. A morel dilemma?
