What is a Bleeding Heart

This is a picture of my bleeding Heart At the end of its blooming period last year. Maybe not the best picture but it will give Lindsey an idea wat this perennial will look like in a month or two.
Here is a White Bleeding Heart
As you can tell, I love Bleeding Hearts I have a total of three in my gardens. If you have shade they are a wonderful addition for any shade or part shade bed. I have seen them in full sun but they will do much better where they are happiest in the shade.

Hello from the Chicago Flower & Garden Show

So this was a first for me, I have lived in the suburbs of Chicago most of my life and am sorry to say that I am not a frequent visitor of this fabulous city. After much hinting, pouting and cajoling my husband agreed to take me to the flower show, Yeah!!! I was so very happy, it has been a log winter here in Chicago land and we are all more than ready for spring. Off we went on the opening Saturday, I chose Saturday over Sunday because of the speakers. I was looking forward to hearing Richard Eyre of "Rich's Foxwillow Pines Nursery" in Woodstock, Ill. talk on inspirational gardens and and Mark Zilis on Hosta Highlights. So after looking at everyone else's blog pictures I have decided to try this again and post my pic's too, here goes.

I just LOVE WATER FEATURES don't you

Ooh Wisteria

So that is that, I think maybe I really can do this blog thing.  What do you think?

Miniature conifers, sigh (covet) sigh

I really must plan a miniature  conifer garden. It might not be this year, but some day.

The Bonsai Collection from Chicago botanical Gardens was inspirational

I just love these miniatures, are they not lovely
So long from Chicago
It is Monday March 15th and I am trying to get comfortable with creating a new post on my blog, so the pictures are from February.
