Sanguinaira Canadensis!

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!
