My hearts bleed for you...

 Yes they do bleed...My wife's bleeding hearts that is.

We brought these home from our cabin 4 years ago as spindles.

Today they are thriving.

My wife even has a white variety...all growing wild at the cabin.

It is great to finally see some color in our yard...and I just saw another blossom to check out.
