Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time
there lived in a certain village a little country girl,
the prettiest creature who was ever seen.



Her mother was excessively fond of her;
and her grandmother doted on her still more.

This good woman had a little red riding hood made for her.


It suited the girl so extremely well
that everybody called her
Little Red Riding Hood.

"Little Red Riding Hood"
by Charles Perrault

The flower is a red Trillium

  10. Lovely photos Rosemary, I love trilliums, I don't have this particular one in my own garden but I have T. cuneatum and T. luteum.
    I guess this is a Trillium erectum? She is a beauty :-)

  12. I have not seen Trillion before and they are very pretty but so shy with bowed heads. The colour is like deep red velvet.

  16. I will now always think of little red riding hood when I see a red trillium because of you. This is a big improvement because when I was a young child in Vermont, my sisters called them nosebleeds.
