Three or four years ago I planted two bleeding hearts in a little corner. Behind it is an old rambler rose that a neighbor gave me the first summer I moved in. It is doing well, but the bleeding heart is thriving. I planted another one behind the garage in a little corner, but it doesn’t get warm sun early in the day, and it doesn’t have sun warmed bricks to urge it on.
I realized last summer that my little Olympus camera, though a little work horse, could not take the kinds of pictures that I wanted to take. So, gulp, yesterday, in anticipation of my tax refund, I bought a Nikon D3000. This may be too much of a work horse, but it was on clearance and I needed to strike when that sale price was hot. By the time the battery was charged, it was dark, so the first pictures I took were of the cat. This morning, though, I took shots of the bleeding heart. I’m off to get more fertilizer, and may take more pictures when I get back.
Ah, spring. 🙂
