All moaning and complaining makes Rurality a dull blog, so I've tried to avoid a bunch of griping about my back problems.
Instead, here's the first Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) of the season. Only the one green leaf just beneath the rightmost petals actually belongs to the Bloodroot. And that thick dry parchment of a bent stem belongs to something else too -- the tender Bloodroot stalk is slightly visible just below it.
Although it's obviously not much of a diagnostic photo, it's still my favorite of several I took over the weekend.
