This delicate little flower was half hidden not too far from the flamboyant trillium and would easily have been missed had I not decided to wander about the tiny garden a bit before continuing on my walk. Although not originally from North America, I hope that perhaps the hummingbirds who are beginning to appear now might benefit from any early nectar this produces so early in the Spring. It is a perfect shaped flower for it, if only the bees haven’t stolen it by biting a hole in the base! This plant, also known as Fumewart, is related to the poppy family and also is a distant relative to the bleeding heart plant which it reminded me of when I saw it. Its root has been used in treatments for fibromyalgia. (Do not try this at home, remember this is not a medical blog.) Have a lovely Monday all! A flower a Day #247
