This is glorious. Great shot. I showed two little girls (my daughter and a friend) a bleeding heart plant yesterday that was just beginning to "bleed." I wonder if the one on the side of my house is still alive. I should go check... back soon to view more online flowers.

Lovely shot! I believe we call it the bleeding heart of Jesus Christ! It's such a delicate flower!

I had a garden with bleeding hearts at one time. It was a rented place, so I had to leave them behind for the next tenant, but I did love them!

They are such delicate flowers! I am glad you got us right in close so we can see the flowers in all their glory!!

Pacey said...

Oh, yeah...I've seen some of these flowers and they look so neat hanging and I called them hanging hearts as I didn't know it's real name. Thanks for the info.

Beautiful! One of my favourite spring flowers! I think I won't see mine for quite a while yet, though. ;-)

Carletta, how passionate these small hearts are! Fine the background too.

What marvellous photo, Carletta!
Watching it one can almost see those hearts bleeding ...

ROSIDAH said...

Beautiful flowers! Is "bleeding hearts" the real name? Have a great week, Carletta.

Arlene said...

Hi Carletta, you are making great macro shots these days! I wonder why they are called "bleeding" hearts. Why not just "hearts?"

Blessed week ahead!

Lovely pink blossoms ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

MyMaracas said...

Ah, an old favorite. They always make me think of my Gran. I had some white ones at the old house, and those are nice too.

Leedra said...

The Bleeding Hearts are so pretty. I am hoping the cold does not get mine tonight.
