Blooming Now

 Bleeding Hearts

I love the perennials in my gardens because even though I have little time to tend them right now, they are blooming anyway! These are some of the flowers blooming on Sunday.


 Globeflower

 Tulips

Tulips on the wane, but still pretty

Your garden is full of colour.

Revrunner said...

Pretty clear why they call them "Bleeding Hearts". ;-)

Hilda said...

I've never seen bleeding heart flowers before - they're adorable! And I love your tulips' variety of colors! Especially the white one with red edges and yesterday's flamboyant red and yellow.

Sandra said...

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

I love all your shots, particularly the bleeding hearts shot. The composition is outstanding.

Susan said...

Isn't it a pure treat when you know you should be out in the garden but you can't and yet mostly everything just gets on with it.
Those gorgeous Bleeding Hearts are so perfect in every way.
All your beautiful blooms are quite impressive, as is your photography :D)

Such pretty colours!

Roan said...

I like perennials, too. Those bleeding hearts are gorgeous, as are all of these flowers. I especially like the tulip with the red edges. I've never seen one quite like it.

Kate said...

PERFECT photos, and I love the bleeding hearts, my mother's favorite flower.

That's the good thing about the spring flowers they just keep coming back stronger every year.. Would be fab if they lasted a wee bit longer though.. you're garden must look a treat EG, beautifully shown here.

Gorgeous...my mother's favorite spring flower was the bleeding heart like this you show. But, when I lived in Arizona, the bleeding heart plant was NOT at all like this [in the plant nurseries' sales floor]. Instead it was like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/ce/Clerodendrum_thomsoniae_-_bleeding-heart_vine_-_desc-flowers_-_from-DC1.jpg

I am a perennial sort of guy. It touches me somehow when they come up in the spring after a horrendous winter.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I have never seen a Bleeding Heart plant before. Little wonder as to how it came by it's name.

Love those Bleeding Hearts, EG!

TexWisGirl said...

so very pretty! no maintenance is my favorite kind of plant/flower. :)

DeniseinVA said...

An incredible sight to behold EG, your photos are fantastic! I have never seen the tulips in your first photo of them, the ones that are creamy tinged with red. Exquisite! And the bleeding hearts, wow! I also loved those globeflowers with that wonderfully bright green background, such a lovely contrast to the yellow.

Lisa Gordon said...

How beautiful these are!
I spent part of my morning photographing my bleeding heart plants. They are exceptionally beautiful this year.

Lowell said...

All are gorgeous, but I do love the bleeding hearts. And the fact they are blooming now testifies to the TLC you gave them earlier!

Stuart said...

If only the beauty of the bleeding heart flowers transferred this bleeding heart liberal.

Jette Hollesen said...

The globeflowers are beautiful and calm, I like the yellow and green
together- alone...

Those hearts are very special, but my favorite are the golden little suns !

cieldequimper said...

I wasn't familiar with globeflowers until now, they are so pretty! As for bleeding hearts, I'm terribly jealous! The ones I planted over and over in my parent's garden always died...

Small City Scenes said...

Certainly worth the wait. Love Bleeding Hearts. I have some new ones called Gold Heart. The leaves are a more chartreuse color but the flower is the same. I planted them under some beech trees and with the lighter color foliage they really stand out. MB

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I like the Tulips and the Bleeding Hearts- very pretty.

Kathy said...

Bleeding hearts are the most unusual plants!

Randy said...

Each one a beauty.

Christian Weiß said...

Wonderful macros, flowers and textures.

Exquisite flowers, gorgeous colors and such perfect captures! They took my breath away!! Thank you for sharing the colorful beauty of your world!!

Michelle said...

These are really beautiful.

Gail Dixon said...

I'm a tad jealous of the bleeding hearts. :) Beautiful!! The white tulip outlined in red is pretty special, too.

orchid Miyako said...

Oh, I was surprised to see the hear-shaped flower; how fantastic(^_^)v
Globeflower and Tulips are also beautiful; and thank you very much for the phrase 'on the wane' ;)

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

I love all the perennials in your garden too, especially the bleeding hearts which are a childhood favourite of mine and haven't a hope of growing in our dry climate.

llandudnopictures said...

Beautiful group of flowers. I miss my bleeding heart which stopped coming back years ago so especially happy to see this one.

Karen said...

Beautiful flowers and photo's.

Rose said...

Love the bleeding heart shot! I used to have one, but an old dog dug it up. She was the neighborhood dog...she had been abused...so I just did not say a word to her. If I came out to sweep the porch with the broom and did not realize she was around, it scared her to death.

Rambling Woods said...

These are beautiful Tina.. My garden is behind the norm in blooming due to the cold spring.... Michelle
