Bloodroot and Breeches

On one of my trips to Shenks Ferry Wildflower Preserve, I was lucky enough to find a Bloodroot flower poking up through some Dutchman's Breeches. Such a pretty flower in a bed of green.

Shenks Ferry is an amazing place, at least 73 species of flowers bloom from mid-March until the end of May. More than 60 other species of flowers bloom during the summer and fall.

Every year I take many trips to Shenks Ferry, what a wonderful way to forget winter and greet spring.
