04.19.2021 Blood-root

It’s always been Bloodroot to me, but when I checked out GoBotany it didn’t show up…these computers are so picky. So I searched the latin name…Sanguinaria canadensis, and discovered it now has a hyphen.  There is a plant they list … Continue reading

I visited the spot where I usually shoot these yesterday morning.  I was hoping for some sign of early spring but nothing doing. It was cold, breezy, overcast, and threatening to rain at any moment.  I guess you could say … Continue reading
