SpRiNg!


White azalea in the morning sun.

This is a "bleeding heart" plant, also know by its official name, Dicentra. The delicate pink blossoms don't last long; but it's a hardy perennial and will remain a green plant for the summer.

My bleeding hearts have just come out too, Patti. Do you grow yours in the shade? They bloom longer there. :)

Pretty. As usual, I am brutal to most plants. My bleeding hearts bled out a decade ago. :-(

Alas, my beautiful azaleas have come and gone. So nice to have a virtual peek at them again!
