White Hearts (Not Bleeding)

This time of year we get the Bleeding Hearts running wild in our backyard, I've posted photos on here before, most recently as part of the Wild Art compilation.

Over coffee and Cyberchase this morning, Gwen mentioned that there was actually a white one out there as well, a little further up the hill, a companion plant to the usual red/pink we've gotten used to seeing.

I grabbed the camera and headed out back to take the shots above. And, just to round out the post, here's a shot of the "conventional" variety I took last week.

Beautiful plants, and a nice harbinger of our favorite time of year.

Great photography, as usual. We don't get to see such plants where I live, so its really great to see it in pictures like this. Thanx for the post.

We have these in our yard also. It's usually all I can do to just walk by and resist the urge to squeeze I do fuschias. =)

I shopped at our local farm and nursery store today and bought a white bleeding heart for our yard! I don't think I'd have zeroed in on this plant among the many that were there without your post that I read yesterday. The tag says that bleeding hearts attract hummingbirds, so our hummers ought to be pleased with this addition to the yard.

I had to post about the latest series of posts here in your lovely blog on my blog. A timely set of coincidences.

You are linked as one of my blogs of note.

Well done on such a beautiful but simply crafted space.
