I think I could photograph bleeding hearts until the cows come home.

But who knew? (I didn’t!)

Another common name for Lamprocapnos spectabilis (bleeding heart) is the “lady in a bath” flower. 

Not this lady in a bath, though:

Cora and the bar of soap

Spotted in downtown Albuquerque yesterday. A sure sign that spring is on its way:

“Forsythia is pure joy. There is not an ounce, not a glimmer of sadness or even knowledge in forsythia. Pure, undiluted, untouched joy.”

~ Anne Lindbergh

The color of tulips…

The scent of lilac…

A new delphinium Don brought home, waiting to be planted in the spring ground. ♥

Don made green beer and we toasted to Patrick.

Patrick became a member of the Save the Drama for Your Mamma Club.

We rejoiced at our first spring flowers.

And the boyz played and played and played. ♥
