Here are some pictures I took last week. Bloodroot is the first flower we see in the wildflower garden. My late father-in-law brought the bloodroot plants to Carrie many years ago for her wildflower garden. Every year it seems to spread a little and to come up in a slightly different spot. These are near the brick path:
And here is a closeup of more:
My Wildflowers of North America book tells me that the bloodroot has round chestnut-brown seeds that fall to the ground in early summer and thus extend the bloodroot's territory.
These have jumped out of the wildflower garden and are nestled by the roots of a nearby tree.
Not wildflowers, no. Daffodils, but we planted these here many years ago and they don't usually do much. This is the best these daffodils have ever done here.
What a pretty spot of encouraging color!
