I've also been out on the hunt for ever-emerging spring wildflowers. One that I captured images of recently is a short-lived little beauty called Bloodroot.
This is a flower that blooms every spring on our road. Every year I say to myself, "Ooh, I need to stop and check that out and get some pictures," but one day melts into the next and suddenly they have disappeared for the season. Well, this year I finally got around to it!
I had a little trouble identifying it, actually. I thought I had it ID'd as a flower called Twinleaf, but then I happened to stumble across it at our local garden center the other day, and lo and behold, my ID was corrected to Bloodroot. The thing that clued me in was the leaf, which is very unique-looking.
Within probably another week or two these flowers will be just a memory. The fleeting lifespan of some flowers is probably the only thing that bums me out about spring.
