🩸Bloodroot or Sanguinaria canadensis is in the poppy flower family.  All parts are toxic to touch, so definitely don't think about eating it. This one hadn't opened up yet, but I had to capture this one with dewdrops when I came across it in the woods, and this is where you can find them.  They don't like disturbed (compacted soil) sites. 

What's neat about them and why are they called bloodroot?
They have a red liquid inside the stems that resembles blood. If you didn't know, I'm squeamish even talking about that subject, thanks to a highschool teachers' annual horrid story of a chainsaw mishap. 😖 HOWEVER, it can be used as a dye.

These would be blooming now. The petals fall off after they are pollinated, so they are pretty short-lived. I've read that ants choose these for that task. Then the basal leaf keeps growing until summer dormancy.
