Memory Shade Garden

 My Mom was a Master Gardener. When she passed away some of my friends I worked with gave me a gift certificate to a nursery and told me to buy something for myself. I purchased this garden statue.
In this shade garden is a Double Bloodroot that one of my sisters recieved from my Mom and my Sis was told they were rare. She dug part of hers and gave it to me.

American native double form that was discovered in Michigan and some people believe it to be the most beautiful of all wildflowers.

I also have a single Bloodroot that I moved from our woods to another of my shade gardens... they are one of the first things to come up in the spring. The  blossom doesn't last long but their beautiful leaves do.

Your statue is beautiful and such a tribute to your mom. Love the blood root - I don't believe I have ever seen one. Thanks for sharing.
