Enough with the winter pictures of snow and worrying about where we’ll put it if we get another big snow storm anytime soon. Time for dreams of spring and early summer I say!
These lovely flowers are formally known as Dicentra spectabilis and more commonly as Bleeding Hearts. With Valentines coming up I hope that no one has a bleeding heart. Sorry … bad joke.
Another name that some might know this late spring / early summer blooming flower by is Dutchman’s Breeches. Perhaps they do look like old fashioned breeches but to me they kind of look like a little girl with pig tails. What do you think?
I know I’ve got several months to go before I’ll see these lovely flowers so I’ll have to be satisfied with looking at photos of them for now.
