Beall is correct, it is a bloodroot

Nice picture but might be bloodroot? Here's a link to bloodroot: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symb...

Here's a link to mayapple: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symb...

I think the mayapple flower dangles from under a big umbrella-shaped leaf rather than the leaf and the flower each coming up from the ground.
