I learned during my years living in Northport that Marsh Marigolds precede the arrival of Trillium at two sites, both known as Trillium Hill. In those areas, the trillium are spread over hills for as far as your eyes can see. I’ve found a few patches of both flowers in Traverse City, but none that rival what’s at Trillium Hill. The beauty of those hills always coaxes me back to Northport for more springtime pictures. You know, one can never have too many trillium photographs.
