Heart On A String

Bleeding Hearts, Flowers, Rain, Drops
One of the most unique of flowers, this is the bleeding heart. It’s sparkling with moisture from a springtime rain.

The bleeding heart plant (lamprocapnos spectabilis) is native to China, Korea, Japan and Siberia. I was surprised to find out it is in the poppy family. It was brought to the west in the 1840s by the famed Scottish plant hunter, botanist Robert Fortune. It is prized by gardeners for its heart-shaped pink and white flowers that bloom in spring and early summer.

Hanging Hearts


Bleeding Hearts, Flowers, Stem, Dew, Drops, Pink, Garden
It’s not difficult to understand the thinking behind the common name of this garden favorite – bleeding heart. Its heart-shape pink or white blooms with a protruding tip make it a logical choice.

Bleeding hearts are a species of flowering plant in the poppy family. These bleeding hearts are from ,my wife’s flowerbed near our house.

Captivating Beauty

Rose, Pink, Beautiful, Lovely,
This rose may be one of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever photographed. It is not perfect or without blemish, but there’s something about its soft blush of pink and the gentle furl of its delicate petals that captivates me; makes it difficult to look away. I snapped a lot of frames of this bloom over a couple of days. (Please excuse my gushing. I understand, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may not have the same effect on everyone.)

I found this beauty in, of all places, the small flowerbed of a motel in Branson, Missouri – the Yellow Rose Inn & Suites. They had a nice variety of blooming flowers around the property but, ironically, there were no yellow roses.

Glorious Spring

Flowers, Daffodils, Tulips, Spring, Colorful Flowers

That God once loved a garden we learn in Holy writ.
And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it.

~Winifred Mary Letts

I would love to be able to boast that I took this photo from a flowerbed in our yard.  This stunning display is another scene from West of the Lake Gardens in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

After the long, hard winter we experienced this year, this spot of incredible beauty is healing therapy for the soul.

Garden Kitty

Cat, Kitty, Garden

This is our cat, Dory!  She was hanging around while I snapped photos around our yard, so…

Actually, I say she’s our cat, but lately it’s not so clear.  We’ve had her since she was a kitten.  She’s an outside cat with a generous food plan and comfy place to sleep – previously on our back porch, now in our garage.  Still, she has a tendency to disappear on a regular basis – sometimes for a few days, sometimes for weeks at a time. We figure she has another spot in our rural area that she considers her second home.

These are the some of the regulars who frequent the birdbath and feeders in our yard.  The yellow ones are male American Goldfinches.  The other three are House Finches – the males having the red coloring.

In the interest of full disclosure – I never got more than three of them to belly up to the bar at one time, so a little Pops Digital magic was needed to fill up the spaces.

This is one of the first poppies to bloom and fade in our spring garden.  I applied a texture to the image.  To me, it didn’t seem right to gaze upon its unfiltered demise.

Where Fairies Live

These sprites were gracious to greet us and pose for pictures at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens.  Though they seem pretty relaxed, they are obviously very conscientious about their public image and work hard at keeping up their home and garden landscaping.
