Bloodroot in the evening sun…
Before the forest canopy fills in, the Bloodroot makes an early spring appearance. The plant’s name is taken from the bright, poisonous, red juice that oozes from its rootstock, if cut. If used properly, both Indians and pioneers used the plant’s roots for topical medicinal purposes, such as the treatment of fungus infections.
More fascinating, at least from my textile science background, the red juice harvested from the roots was used as a fabric dyestuff and body paint by the Indians, and later adopted by the settlers of the new world.

"Lately when I look at my parents, I notice all their wrinkles when they talk, and their dark circles, and the puffiness of their eyes when they laugh. They’re growing old with each day that passes and it breaks my heart to know they’ll never get any younger than they are today. Time has passed so quickly and it’s crazy how this year my father is turning fifty. That’s so hard to believe because it seems like just yesterday when people mistaken him for my older brother. And my mother, were those crinkles there before? I’m not sure. I just hope I make them proud when I finally graduate. Choose a career I love and be able to buy them nice things without them telling me not to because I’m still just a child and I shouldn’t spend money on them. Maybe I’ll always be a child to them. But one day, I hope they’ll see me as that little girl that’s grown so much and be proud of the grown woman that stands before them."
