|Bleeding Heart or Dutchman's Breeches|
Ever since I can remember, I've always loved this harbinger of spring. Seeing it in my neighbor's yards, growing up, I knew someday they would be planted in one of my gardens. Well, life and all its wonderful detours diverted me from planting my own Bleeding Hearts, until now. Last year, they were planted in my shade garden and I kept my fingers crossed through the winter. Didn't know if they'd make it, or not. Well, here's the proof that all is well and, before too long, there'll be a gorgeous plant to welcome my springs, forevermore (or, at least, until my estate matures!)
