“Bloodroot”

“Bloodroot” - Duffins Creek, Whitevale, Ontario

Here’s the post that was supposed to happen on Friday, but I was in the Bancroft “no service” zone most of the day and forgot to update this.

Another harbinger of spring in our area is Bloodroot. The beautiful white blossom emerges from a “shroud” created by its large green leaves. This particular specimen was found along the shores of Duffins Creek, near Whitevale, Ontario. It’s amazing just how fast it springs to life from the grey forest floor. One day there is nothing and the next, a blooming flower is up and ready to be enjoyed.
