Ooooooh, this is AMAZING!!! 😍😍😍😍😍😍
great shot – such grace and beauty in this
I love bleeding hearts. So pretty.
Very nice photo and poem combo. I find it difficult to get decent photos of bleeding hearts. Well done!
Thanks Amy. They are so pretty I get distracted by the bloom and often forget to carefully consider what is in the background and how the flower will show up.
Lovely photo. Thesy are also called “lady in the bath” because if you turn them up the other way the white part looks like a lady in a big pink bath!
I’ve never heard them called “lady in the bath” and I LOVE it!! Thank you so much for this new name and new way of seeing them!
Bleeding hearts are a favorite of mine and they show up in some of my bouquets. Lovely, lovely shot and oh-how-I love your turn of words and have the garden wearing “her heart on her sleeve”! Perfect!

Thanks! I’ve never seen them in a bouquet. For some reason there are quite a few flowers I never think of to pick. Now I’ll be making little arrangements with bleeding hearts! THANKS!
They make cheery little bouquets and always delight the young and young at heart. I used them in centerpieces for my great-niece’s First Communion a few weeks ago. I put just one stem in each arrangement (the arrangements were quite full). Several in attendance asked me what they were. The best, however, was a youngster about 6 years old. I saw her sitting by herself, gently flicking the stem of Bleeding Hearts. I asked her if she liked it. She did. We talked about what it was and had quite a charming conversation. I asked if she would like to take the centerpiece home. You can imagine my utter delight as she walked out the door holding the centerpiece as if it were a baby doll. 🙂
Oh what a lucky little girl to encounter you and all the beauty and magic you make! And oh the magic of little girls – carrying the centerpiece like a baby doll! Thanks for sharing that.

As a bleeding heart myself, I have always loved them, and planted one this week in our new perennial garden on Long Island. Great pic and words as always!
Ha! May both those hearts grow and bloom profusely!
I love this
Thanks Steve. Bleeding heart is one of my favorite flowers.
Wow! A simple word, but means a lot. Wow!
This is a wonderful image in so many ways.
Amazing! Whether we live in the North or the South hemisphere. we love what we love
