No idea where all these funky bleeding hearts that are blooming in the backyard came from. Have never seen them before. Maybe the neighbor lady is planting random stuff for us again so she doesn't have to look at as many weeds. This guy already fully opened up, so the heart-dripping-blood effect isn't 100% there. Looks more like a slimy puss ball instead...

Ami's thumbs are about as green as a school bus, so pretty much the only thing we have growing are an abundance of weeds and from the previous owners that are still somehow clinging to life after several years. She tried to plant a few things once. They're all dead.

Hey! That's not fair! The weeds I planted are growing fantastically!! And I know the names of flowers... just not how to keep 'em alive!!

Beautiful image! ..and great composition as well. Did you add color to the bottom background? I don't know any about plants (sorry), but love the image.

Nope, the pink color of the bottom background is just from another group of flowers a couple feet behind this guy. The green background is either grass or weeds. ;)

Hey, show a little respect for an heirloom perennial! I love Bleeding Hearts!
