Ahhhhh . . . . . More Spring

Bloodroot opening for its brief bloom. The petals are so delicately attached that a soaking rain, too much breeze or warmth and theylie beneath the palm-shaped leaves like preened goose down. Addendum: 4/16/06 - Ah! After they're pollinated they lose their petals.

Lovely photos. It seems like all the little timid, ground-hugging flowers are the first to appear. Courageous, aren't they....
