I’m not delving into politics, but isn’t that the phrase that comes to mind when someone says “Bleeding Hearts?” Wish it wasn’t true as these flowers don’t deserve that moniker. I love Bleeding Hearts, they are one of the few flowers that flourish in the shade and instead of being a sad plant it reminds me of Christmas ornaments hanging from a tree.
My backyard gets so little sun, especially next to the fence, and this hardy plant has survived much abuse. It has been run over countless times by a lawn mower, accidents caused by well meaning people who help me mow occasionally and can’t tell weeds from flowers. Guess that’s my fault, I should get rid of the weeds. Last year I did, so I think my Bleeding Heart Plant is safe.
Photography Notes: Another straight out of the camera from my Olympus E-10 camera. Only took four images at different settings before I rushed back in to dip strawberries that day
