Seeking, finding, photographing, sharing.
Like old friends, these plants that we bought several years ago, show up to greet us about this same time every year! It's refreshing to see them again.
My two children and I bought this bleeding heart for Brenda over 30 years ago, and it has made the move from that original flower bed to three others at the three other homes where we've lived.
For the last few years we've placed our geranium pots under the house or in the garage during the winter, and let them go dormant. In the spring, we cut back the old stalks and bring them outside and give them water again. Within a week, they show signs of new growth, and in six weeks, will be blooming heavily again!

You mean I didn't kill that bleeding heart years ago?? I used to pick the flowers off that thing in droves! Glad it's still around! I'll teach my kids how to pick them off for you.
The azaleas are starting to bloom here, 91 degrees today:)
Lovely set...I don't have a green thumb so I leave that to others and just take photos of flowers. Great post :))
Great shots and great stories....ahhhh, spring ;)))))
Love the color of those Bleeding Hearts! I save my geraniums also on the screened porch facing south..the cold got one this year though..Love to save ferns also..The best spring surprise I had was when we were building this house and I had put my plants in the storage shed..Opened the door that spring to new sprouts on them..I just thought they would be dead :-)
My heart smiled to see my bleeding hearts on your post. Familiar and lovely.
Beautiful shots! Like #1.
Very nice , look forward to seeing the geraniums in bloom.
very nice!!I put my geraniums in the garage for winter also.
I have peonies from my Grandma, featured on 2009/05/10. That poor plant moved 5 times in the last 40 years, just about 10 days ago last. Hope it will make it just like Brenda's wonderful hearts!
Nice shots! I love those bleeding hearts. They are so neat!
Nice... I'm seeing a few plants revive around my home. Always an exciting time of year!
Gorgeous 1st shot. I have a dicentra in my garden but it's not flowering yet.
I can see that you're much more of a gardener than I am. It's incredible that they keep coming back with new life every spring. Nice shots.
Wow very cool that they keep coming back nice capture
And great to see - so full of promise :-)
You're 'ahead' of us for sure, my bleeding heart is barely poking out of the ground... such a great flower, nice!

We made a brief visit to Duxford this afternoon to see what was flying. There wasn't a lot of activity but a couple of Tiger Moths came in to land and I caught…
