Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) - 06
(Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) - 06) The leaf of the bloodroot is wrapped around the flower bud as it emerges from the ground in early spring. The leaf doesn't fully expand until after the flower has bloomed. Pictured is a newly opened flower with its petals not fully expanded, as is the flower in the next photo. Since all of the bloodroot don't open at the same time, we always look for the leaf to confirm our identification of the flower.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
