Not a lot to say about this image…so a little fun with a word of more than one meaning.
Beautiful. I think this pretty flower needs a prettier name. Haven’t seen any bloodroot in the garden (yet).
And thus the stigma. 🙂 Thanks Tracy. I think you are in Tom W’s neck of the woods? so you should see them soon. Especially after this heat we’ve had. I know he just posted some fine images of these.
I’m more east and slightly north of Tom (he in the Lexington Area, I in Beverly). Tom hasn’t seen bloodroot in his yard, either, but found a small patch somewhere. There’s still time, though, but wonder if the hot temps have stunted this particular bloom.
I hadn’t spoken with him, so just assumed. My bad. I think the lack of rain is problematic. The patches of most wildflowers I see have wilted leaves and the petals fall off if you sigh near them. Probably a combination of the two.
Really lovely image Steve! I kinda like the name…to me, it makes the flower even more elegant.
Thanks Greg. I’ve always liked having fun with words that can be taken in various ways and “stigma” has been right up there any time I thought about flower parts. I’m glad you enjoyed the double entendre.
