Underneath the staked Dawn Redwood tree
...every spring at this time...
you will locate the Bloodroot.
The delicate petals are a marvel to behold
And the excitement of watching them multiply every spring just warms the heart.
I am very careful with the beauties,
because they only last for a couple days in good weather.
So this is my little patch of Sanguinaira Canadensis!
It puts a smile on my blond tipped snout!
