My daughter and I grew this wildflower from a dollar store mixed seed packet the summer of our tantrum-laced zoo visit. Tending to this garden was definitely a highlight of an otherwise tough year.

Bloodroot, from years past

I missed the blooming of bloodroot this year because I was recovering from back surgery. I have found just one patch of this wildflower in my area, and I hope to recapture it each year but my timing and priorities seem to prevent it most years. At least this year I had a good reason for skipping its show.
