April 4: Celandine Poppy

I'm not 100% sure of this identification (or some of of the others, I'll let you know when I'm not). I found this poppy in deep shade along the Clinch River just below Norris Dam. TVA has a wonderful trail that traverses the side of a steep hill that follows the river. Because Norris Dam is high, very cold water is released from its bottom to keep the Clinch River flowing. You often find an eerie fog in the morning and evening because of the difference in temperatures between air and water. I have pictures of this, somewhere, on a back-up cd :)
