And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Another bloodroot photo, this one was taken out at Buffalo Mountain Camp - a private Methodist camp encompassing 700 beautiful acres on the west side of Buffalo Mountain. The staff, and I'm sure many, many volunteers, have really been hard at work sprucing up the campgrounds -- it's never looked better. I'm very appreciative of all their hard work and for their hospitality. They've always been very welcoming in the off season of hikers -- but require that you sign in at the office. You'll find detailed directions at the above link. If you go, follow the signs to the office and then park in the large gravel lot just past that. I recommend that you take the road/trail to the right of Allison Lodge, and then take the lower trail which will follow Ramsey Creek. Lots of wildflowers including trillium ready to blossom.
