North Carolina Arboretum

We visit Asheville NC fairly often.  We enjoy the music and art events, and fly fishing in the nearby rivers.  During some of our recent trips I had the chance to spend time sketching at the North Carolina Arboretum.

Trilliums are one of my favorite wildflowers, and Toad Shade is one of my favorite Trilliums.  I was delighted to find some of them blooming at the NC Arboretum this past spring.  The large  leaves have wonderful irregular spots that form a great foil for their dark magenta flowers.
