04.17.2012 The stigma of Bloodroot.

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.
