This is Spring!
The delicate white flowers of Bloodroot have arrived. This has been a long, cold winter, different than the ones in the past few years.
We weren’t sure if they would be blooming but we took the chance and went here to see. It was a warming afternoon, with some sun and clouds.
We were actually a bit surprised they were up and blooming.
But here they were, the Sanguinaria canadensis, Bloodroot, the namesake for this blog and our inspirational plant blooming away in the middle afternoon sun of this early April weekend day.
This is a well-drained and sunny Springtime hillside, a perfect place for Bloodroot to thrive.
After such a long winter, these beautiful white flowers are the perfect greeting of Springtime.
Springtime is here!

Below is the hillside with all of the blooming Bloodroot. At the first glance, it would appear as if there is no blooming flowers here.
