    I was out walking in the woods with my kids, and my dog and came up on this.. Just recently found out that it's called a Trillium. The person that told what it was also was like. You didn't pick it did you? I didn't but was curious why and was told that you can be fined for picking it. :eek:

    Wow, I have never seen a plant like this. Never ever.
    Do you have another picture of a different angle, such as you lowering to the plant?

    No I haven't any more shots of this flower. Unfortunately it was the only one that wasn't really blurry.. There is a bit of history to this plant and it was used for a few different medicinal purposes.

    As far as I can tell it is part of the Lily family... here is a link for the many different types of trillium
