Update March 27, 2009: Today my favorite spring wildflower started blooming in my garden. Bloodroot is a little unusual since the flower actually opens before the leaves appear. You can see the leaves wrapped around the stem of the bloom. I have been waiting for them for the past week and noticed the sprouts this afternoon, but there were not any blooms. By the time I grabbed my camera, five had opened.
