I’m sending you a picture I took of a White Trillium with four petals. It’s the first I’ve seen like this. I saw it while taking photos on our property out on Hayes Line, west of the city, this past Monday (May 19)

(Note: Trilliums are apparently quite prone to genetic mutations. It is therefore not uncommon to see trilliums with multiple petals, sepals and leaves beyond the usual three of each.  D.M.)
