(Bloodroot - 02) This fully matured bloodroot flower has completely filled in the space between its petals, as compared with the immature flower in the first photo. The bloodroot, an endangered wild flower, in this particular area were nearly destroyed by workers trying to give the park a more "manufactured beauty" than the one that God had given it. These were the first bloodroots we had seen in this area in many years. We cannot improve on God's work!
