    • Thanks so much, Seonaid.

      An old-fashioned bloomer, always reminds me of my grandmother, who loved them.

      I hope spring in Scotland is as lovely as it is in the Midwest this year.

    • Thanks, Eliza. πŸ™‚

      You must be north – I’m in Zone 5B.

      Like everything else, the dicentra are a bit late this year. This one sprouted a branch of all white blooms for the first time!

      • Perhaps you had a white seedling find its way into your pink plant. I have both varieties in my gardens.
        We are the same zone, but the weather has remained cool, which is fine with me, better for working outside. The warmth of the past few Aprils caused everything to sprout way too early and frosts would damage the bleeding hearts when they were in full bloom. Looks like we may not have that problem this year. If anything, we are about a week behind ‘normal.’

        • Yes, I much prefer a cool, wet spring than what we experienced the last two years! The blooms last longer, the hostas love it, and, at least in Illinois, it means more time to enjoy this brief but fertile month or two when everything is green and lush before the sun and humidity take over.

    • Thanks so much, Sartenada.

      They’re such an old fashioned plant – my grandmother had them in her garden and they always remind me of her. πŸ™‚
