Bloodroot is used in the Pagan world as a proponent of marriages.

  • Place a bloodroot over your front door to encourage anyone who enters to respect your marriage.
  • To inspire a happy marriage, mix a combination of the two colored roots (darker red to brownish roots are King roots and the lighter orange to pinkish roots are Queen roots), wrap in a red flannel fabric and place under the marital bed.
  • If you fear someone is trying to break up your marriage, sew some dried bloodroot into yours and your spouse’s pillows.

  1. I don’t even like asparagus, but I was up in my dad’s garden this week looking for some, just to feel like it is spring! I didn’t see any, but maybe this weekend some will come out!

  2. Look your nails sort of match the asparagus! 🙂

    Those Siberian Squill are beautiful, as are the Bloodroot. Are they small flowers, the bloodroot? Not sure that I’ve seen them or the Squills though I see plenty May Apples. My mother’s Rhododendron is in bloom right now, it’s so lovely. Great finds! 🙂
