dsc_00022First blooms of spring. Bloodroot salvaged from a nearby property targeted for new construction. Native Americans used bloodroot as a dye for their skin and in small doses, as a tonic for the blood as well as other remedies. Some traditional herbalists consider bloodroot to be poisonous. Its a great remedy mentally to see the first blooms so early in the spring! Shot with Nikon D200 and a Nikon 28-105MM lens.
