A first native wildflower sighting: bloodroot

It’s always a harbinger of spring.  I’ve written many posts about bloodroot over the years.

Our small plant here in Asheville has been flowering over the last few days.  Delightful to see it, along with all the other signs of spring on the way.

It’s a small plant with small flowers compared to the others that I’ve posted about in the past, but it’s perfectly lovely,  nevertheless.
