Okay - I know y'all are probably sick of all my plant show and tells! So many of you thought this was such a neat plant though, that I thought it would be fun to show you what they look like when the blooms fully open. I love how the "heart" opens up and the inner white part is exposed. Both bushes have dozens of blooms on them now and have grown to about 18" tall and about 12" wide.
And . . . ta da! These are my white Bleeding Hearts - though it is a little ways off from blooming. If you click on the picture and look very carefully, you can see some tiny, tiny buds beginning. Also, I've noticed I have some Columbines coming up in the middle of it - they seem to have wandered. I'm going to have to wait until every one "grows up" a little more so I have an easier time differentiating between Bleeding Heart and Columbine. The rounder leaves are the Columbines and the pointier ones belong to the Bleeding Heart. I'm hoping they will cohabitate nicely until I can seperate them.
My Lilies are really growing good - pretty soon I'll be subjecting you to more endless gratuitous flower shots!
Dh and I headed to Lowe's today for some home improvement stuff and came home with an Azeala bush and a Lilac bush. Aren't you excited? But, no worries - I really only get super excited about the spring flowers. Once summer hits - I prefer to stay indoors with the A/C, so I'll be all "plantsed" out by then.
You know the drill.
