Plant is a mystery to us? Do you know what's about to happen?

2016-04-14 - Along an Adair County Roadway - Photo by Linda Waggener.
Every inch of landscape becomes precious close up - And most new discoveries about the land are only possible up close and personal. This plant was found in a 25 minute walk in a beautiful little valley. It's doesn't particularly stand out at this stage, though it is regal and understated in all green. We'd like to know what to expect in the next hours or days. We'd take a quick answer from an expert, even advice on how this plant should be Googled. We aim to go back. But would really appreciate help. Initially, the stop was to see if we could find an elusive May Apple flower. Didn't, but the sight of them elicited a childhood memory: Linda remembered their real purpose: They make excellent doll umbrellas. Something we might want to pass on to Tillie and Hailey, both of whom seem to really appreciate such things. - Ed Waggener. Click Read More for Page Candler's answer: It's Bloodroot.
