Bleeding Heart


Yes, I am a bleeding heart liberal. But this is the dicentra spectabilis in my backyard.

I have one out front that I got as a division from my then-girlfriend when I moved in 9 years ago. It's so flashy and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger--I used to find it a little embarrassing to have such a plant so prominently placed in the most prominent part of my garden.

But this year I'm finally getting into it.

How beautiful! I love the bleeding heart flowers. Great picture too, by the way.

So, I’m stopping by and let you know that I’ve got a list of several free books up for grabs in my May Pay It Forward Book Exchange. Come on over if you’re interested in entering to win or even hosting your own PIF giveaway this month!

Here here !!! Much banging of the table. Liberal minds are hard to find! And the flower's nice too!

I love bleeding hearts, but I have to say, whenever I see them, I always think they look like upside-down chickens. (A little bit, no?)

ha ha. i outed myself as an obama supporter the other day at my bible study, full of conservative republicans. fortunately no one went screaming from the room or declared I was going to hell. Maybe I'll even be able to convince a few of them to vote for him. ;)

I love the "old fashioned" bleeding heart. I had a huge one of these at the house we moved from, and I was sure I saw one coming up here, but there are NO perennials AT ALL. Perhaps tomorrow, when I am all on my own, I'll go buy one.
