I keep Lamprocapnos spectabilis Alba flowers on my balcony, and right now they’re in full bloom. Love spring! 😀
A.k.a. Old-fashioned bleeding-heart, Venus’s car, Lady in a bath, Dutchman’s trousers or Lyre-flower.

Bleeding heart we call it, lovely. I have one of those in the garden, but it is red, much smaller and only just coming into bloom 🙂

My parents have them in their garden, but pink ones. 🙂 They have many names (see text under the picture), but I think Bleeding heart is the most common one. Only the white ones are called Alba.

I really like this against the out-of-focus background! Super shot. 🙂

Mother Nature’s the best designer! 😀

Indeed and we see it in every season, even in winter’s bitter cold 🙂

We had the pink bleeding hearts in our garden, but unfortunately it died. Must remember to replace it 😊

I wish I had a garden! I would fill it with trees, flowers and vegetables. On lazy days could just take pictures in the garden instead of bicycling all over town 🙂

We grow veg in the garden and the greenhouse. We have mixed success but it is fun. I should really do a small photo project based on our garden.

How pretty! Love the colorful bokeh you caught in the background as well. Just a pleasing image overall. Happy Spring Calee! 🙂

Thanks so much, Alison! 🙂 Last night I dreamt of that horse, I just can’t get him out of my mind! Happy Spring you too!!

Calee, this is really beautiful.
We see mostly the pink/red ones here, so this one is really special for me to see.
May 2, 2013 at 9:30 PM
Thanks so much, Lisa! I think the pink ones are more common, but I like the white Alba more I think 🙂 When the light is right, the white hearts glow!

You made a very beautiful photo of this flower.

Thanks so much, Bente! 🙂
Beautiful shot, i did some of those on Monday. We have them at a certain elevation in the mountains..:-)
May 2, 2013 at 9:46 PM
Thanks Ed! Yes, I saw your post from 3000+ ft level. My balcony flowers are about 6ft above sea level 😉
May 3, 2013 at 7:08 PM
You have a great green thumb..:-)

What a gorgeous shot! Really love that you captured their alignment magnificently 😀 And oh, I was having fun memorizing the scientific name of this flower …”lamprocapnos spectabilis…” Ahahaha!
May 2, 2013 at 11:40 PM
Thanks so much! hehe, as I was typing it I felt a bit like Harry Potter when he’s memorizing spells 😉

Looks like a watercolor painting. Beautiful!

Beautiful framing of the flowers, gorgeous lighting, and colorful blurred background–it makes for a wonderful shot.
May 3, 2013 at 9:29 AM
Thanks so much, Mike! It’s getting warmer and sunnier over here and the Alba flowers glow in the light 🙂
May 3, 2013 at 7:13 PM
Lovely! I’d like some of these white ones for my shaded area. The red bleeding hearts are the most common here. 🙂 Ed from Thoughts from the Road is my son! 🙂
May 3, 2013 at 12:20 PM
Thanks for visiting and the ‘likes’! 🙂 Ed’s one of the first people I “met” when I started blogging last year. I love to watch his pictures from the road (and sometimes at home!) 🙂

This is glorious Calee!
May 3, 2013 at 11:34 PM
Thanks Emily! They’re pretty, aren’t they? I miss having a garden, but I keep a lot of flowers on my balcony to compensate 😉

Beautiful photo. We have a really nice bleeding heart in our backyard that has been the subject of quite a few of my photos. It is a red one and honestly until my dad moved up from Texas to Wisconsin and bought a house I thought they were all red (shows how much I know about plants). However, his new house came with a beautiful white bleeding heart that captivated me. Normally we would be seeing our bleeding heart in bloom by now but it has been such a cold spring.

Thanks Rob! It’s been a long, cold winter and spring over here as well, but suddenly it changed and everything started blooming! A few weeks ago I was still wearing my winter coat, today I’ve been walking outside in shorts and t-shirt. 🙂 I hope yours start blooming soon too!
May 5, 2013 at 6:24 PM
Fabulous shot Calee!!
May 4, 2013 at 5:58 PM
Thanks so much, Mary!! 🙂
May 5, 2013 at 6:25 PM
I haven’t seen all white ones before. This is beautiful.
