Bloodroot – 19 April 2008

After a cold, often rainy and windy, early spring, the past few days have been absolutely gorgeous; and during our long walks we’ve been seeing welcome signs of spring’s return: daffodils, forsythia, coltsfoot, dandelions….

Yesterday we spotted our first bloodroot (Sanguinaria Canadensis) of the season, an early spring flower that is white with a yellow center, has a single, large, irregular leaf that wraps around the stalk, and grows to a height of 10 inches. (See photo.)

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
