Something new, something old

April showers, April flowers

Timing is everything, at least with bloodroot. Bloodroot is an early blooming flower native to the Eastern United States and Canada. It is a sign of spring in our back yard. The bright white flowers pop up before most everything else, and the leaves follow soon after. The interestingly shaped leaves with the striking net venation last through the summer, but the flowers only last a couple weeks. I have tried in the past to get a photo that I like of this flower. This still is not right, but every spring I have another chance and that is something to look forward to.
