Last spring I completely missed the delicate but fleeting show performed by these spring beauties. I'm not even sure how it happened but last year I completely forgot to go looking for my Bloodroot until it was too late. I vowed that wouldn't happen again and now I have their digital images saved forever.
The original plant was given to me by a gardening friend who has since moved away. I am reminded of her friendship and generosity every spring when I look to see if the Bloodroot is up. Valerie was a heart friend and kindred spirit always willing to make holes in her garden just so she could share a shovel full of this plant or that.
This is one plant I must transplant down to Porcupine Hollow. (One of many that will make the move with me)
The garden at Porcupine Hollow will be a new garden filled with old friends.
