  1. Just gorgeous! One of my favorites! :) Do you have any white ones? My friend has a white one and it's pretty, too. I think I like the pink a little better.

  4. No, mine are all pink. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a white one...sounds beautiful.

  6. You're welcome, David.

  7. My wife loves bleeding hearts. I'm sure she'll plant some once I get the sprinklers put in (doing it now) and we move into the house. Blessings.

  8. I've not had much luck with bleeding hearts - maybe too humid here. My own heart has ached at times but never bled, thank the Lord!!

    Thanks for commenting on my bird babies - I am still astounded that they all came back for a visit!!
    I adore Nature.

  11. Strider, I didn't realize you were in the process of moving. Did you build?

  15. I love the photo, Willow. Bleeding hearts do not grow well in our mediterranean climate so I enjoy seeing yours as I miss the Pacific Northwest flowers of my past.

  16. Stevie, I'm so glad you enjoyed Henry Orient. The girls so reminded me of myself at that age and time period.
