‘Trillium Erectum’ Flowers, a.k.a. ‘Stinking Benjamin’, At ‘Castle In The Clouds’, May 5, 2018.

That is the first time I have ever seen them and I have lived in New Hampshire, in the woods, on dirt roads, for 33-years. I have seen plenty of ‘Lady Slippers‘ BUT this was new to I.

Yes, I was looking for Lady Slippers, though I knew that I was probably a few weeks too early.

This was in a swampy area, off the road, by the 1st entrance to the ‘Castle in the Clouds‘. Yes, this was when we were doing our Volunteer Day activity. Cleaned the two trolleys before lunch. Then we were sent down to try and tidy up the first entrance — by the signs. There was a fair amount of branches on the ground and I was trying to lug these into the woods, away from sight.

That is when I saw them. There were 4 flowers in a clump.

Did NOT know what they were called.

Had to download and use “Picture This — Plant Identification” to make sure what it was. However, to be fair, I did try the built-in “Google Lens” and it did get it right! But I wanted to make sure.

Belying its scientific name, none of the flowers were erect. They were all drooping. I had to prop them up to get my pictures!

I think the Erectum part has to do with the white ‘things‘ sticking up. Not sure whether they are the stigmas or the ovaries.

The Trillium part is easy. Three petals and three sepals. Trillium is a reference to the ‘three’ petals.

I did not detect a smell. So, can’t vouch for the ‘stinking Benjamin‘.

The other common names are: red trilliumwake-robinpurple trillium, and Beth root.

A good time will be had by ALL. That is a guarantee.

Yes, of course, we will be there. I have probably been to at least 17 of the 24.

See you there. I gather that there might still be SOME seating available.

Click image to access the ‘HRMUSA’ Website to get a T-shirt.


They are FREE, one per customer, but you have to pay $3.99 shipping — from “Heart Rate Monitors USA“.

But they sent me one FREE-FREE when I order my Garmin Fenix 5 from them. We have had a lot of dealings since November so they know me well.

The T-shirt came today, USPS, whereas the Fenix 5 was delivered by UPS on Friday.

Nice quality T-shirt.

You should get one even if you have to pay the $3.99 shipping.

I am not going to take any chances with my new Garmin Fenix 5. I am hoping that we will have a good, long term relationship. So far, it looks very promising.

I had shied away from using screen protectors with both my Garmin Vivoactive 3s & Fitbit Ionic. They both had touchscreens and I did not want anything getting in the way.

Not so with the Fenix 5. It does not have a touchscreen. Plus I got the glass version where the screen is not as rugged as the sapphire version. I did some research and many people advised getting a screen protector. I looked around in Amazon and got the ‘Kimilar’ shown above. It did the job — as stated and promised. No drama. It comes with a suction plunger — I assume to remove the protector if need be. I still have two left.

I already had the USB port protectors that I had got for the Vivoactive 3. So, that was handy.

So, just wanted to share.
