Oh, Happy Day!
My favorite flower is the Bleeding Heart. I've tired growing them for the past 5 years, but other than pictures, I have never seen an actual bloom. I bought a few more bulbs last week and went out to plant them today.
Many of you know how much I love the book, The Secret Garden. I have my own secret garden that I've been working on for the past three years. It's in a little corner between by house and backyard fence, but there's not too much to see right now. Phillip trimmed up my overgrown climbing rose this weekend and this morning was the first time I've been in the garden since last fall.
Imagine my shock and surprise when I looked down and spotted a little pink.
My dream of seeing a Bleeding Heart has finally come true!
They are more beautiful and delicate than I imagined.
Benjamin said "I wish we could stay out here all day." I feel the same way! It doesn't take much to make me happy. :0)
