I see these every spring and I never manage to get a photo before they're gone.  Thanks to my resourceful wife, I now know they are called Bloodroot - Sanguinaria canadensis L. These little flowers pop up in early Spring, and then are gone before the rest of the thicket grows over it.  These are up on the bike path as it goes over the Plotter Kill.

  1. I love those little flowers, and I'd never know what they were--so my thanks to your wife and to you!

  2. I would love to be there for some close-up of the Bloodroot...

  3. I will see if I can get back there for a close-up. My wife is wonderfully good at finding out the names of things I photograph!
