Along with Spring Beauty.And Dutchman’s Breeches. Virginia Bluebell shows off her floppy little bloom.A little fern uncurls itself on the forest floor.Solomon’s Seal uncurls as well.A few Wild Ginger leaves grace the woods.Purple has been blooming for a while now, but sticks around long enough for a chat with Bloodroot among the rocks.And a chat amidst the trees.Bloodroot is thrilled for all the company, though she remains the dominant bloom in the forest for now.Her reign won’t last long. Already, she begins to yield, shown here with her pretty little leaves strewn on the ground around her.But Bloodroot is one of those plants who just gets better with age. Here she shows that even when her bloom is gone, she is still beautiful, elegant and cool.While we celebrate the blooming and passing of Bloodroot, we must shed a tear for the last Snowdrop, tucked in the shade of the rocks. Virginia Bluebell is about to become the dominant bloom in the woods. Like any respectful youngster, she pays homage to her senior. Here a vibrant Bluebell grows with a mature Snowdrop which has quite literally gone to seed.And one final picture of Bloodroot because – hey! – she’s earned it – shown here with some little pink Spring Beauties.
