Surprising Bleeding Heart In The Garden

Now I have never really been interested in flowers, plants or gardening. But recently I have actually come to appreciate these things a bit more, at least flowers and herbs. Though I still only have one green plant in my apartment and two window boxes with herbs during the summer on my balcony. However, now and then I come across flowers in stores that really capture me. Like this one:

Surprising Bleeding Heart In The Garden
This flower is called Bleeding Heart in English, a very dramatic name I think. Hehe.

In Swedish it is called Löjtnantshjärta, which if literally translated becomes Lieutenant's Heart. The scientific name for it is Lamprocapnos Spectabilis.

Anyway, I had never seen this flower before when I saw it and I thought it was the cutest thing. But when I told my mum about it she said that she actually have those in her garden. Ops... I had completely missed that! So of course when I visited her next time I had to see them for myself, and yupp - there they were.

Right alongside the house wall, a pretty Bleeding Heart in her garden. Though in white.

But equally as cute.

And the fact that my mum already had this flower in her garden was a bit of a relief for me, because I then realized that I did not have to buy one myself. Lol! I can just admire the loveliness of the Bleeding Heart in her garden instead, where I am sure that the flower also has a much higher chance for survival than in my apartment. Hehe. :p
