I hope you find it, as it is an interesting plant, but keep in mind that it doesn't look like it does in my photo for very long. It quickly loses the dark red and bluish green tints as it comes up. The individual flowers are tiny, maybe 1/3 of an inch across and turn to a greenish yellow and the flower cluster expands into a widely-spread loose cluster. The foliage is just an average green that looks like Meadow Rue (Thalictrum genus) foliage, which is where the species name, thalictroides, comes from.

I walked past them for many years without seeing them. Once I knew what they looked like, I saw them in places I'd been without seeing them in the past. Look for them in the best-quality, richest woods, as they seem to need relatively high-quality surroundings.

Hopefully we'll see entries from lots of people. This is a month when there's tons of new stuff to photograph as spring really kicks in, so everyone should get out with their camera. The big advantage of digital cameras is that it essentially costs nothing to click the shutter, as opposed to the days of film, so take lots and lots of photos!

Sounds great...I like meadow rue.

I'll keep my eyes open for it.

Beautiful photo, Lib. I think I'm finally getting "horseshoe up your rear" saying. (Although, it still doesn't sound too lucky to me. )
