How many times have I transplanted my grandfather’s bleeding hearts?

February 8, 2013

From garden to garden, from house to house, for years.

184 copy

But each spring I know they will come up and my house, which ever house I’m in, that house feels like home.

Thought about and dug up out of my photo files for the WordPress weekly photo challenge…Home

Some days are like that.
Best time ever! An evening downtown with MUSE!

    Your lovely photo reminded me that I planted these at my first home, it was wonderful seeing them pop up each Spring.

      How wonderful Sue. When you stop traveling you can plant them again…although I don’t know why you’d stop traveling. 🙂

    One of my all time favorite blooms is that of the bleeding heart. Lovely photo!

      Is it Diane? I knew we were kindred spirits. 🙂 It’s such a lovely and hardy and faithful little plant, isn’t it?

      Thank you Marianna. 🙂 I also love a saved yellow rose I’ve moved here. Although not my grandfather’s he loved yellow roses.

    I believe I’ve only seen Bleeding Hearts as a hanging plant. They are beautiful. I love having plants from someone else’s garden or a cutting of a house plant. I think of them each time I see the plant, as you think of your grandfather when you see these.

    This is where I admit homesickness – I cannot transplant my parents’garden from Scotland over here. Something I find quite sad so I recognise the meaning behind moving your bleeding hearts 🙂

      Aww, Amanda! ((Hugs)) I’ve been known to travel to the Czech Republic with a snorkel which is a wonderful place to “keep” a cutting of violets till they get to Vancouver. I know, I know, really BAD!

    I did the same thing with my grandmothers daffodils and day lilies. The daffodils got damaged, but I still have those lilies, all these locations and years later.

      Hi Melanie, I’m so glad you left your site addy because now I can get to know you. Day lilies are so fantastic. Can you believe the range of colours and huge flowers they come in these days? I’m off to follow your site and catch up on your re-purposing…one of my most favorite things to do. 🙂

        You are welcome to visit anytime! Thats the great thing about blogs…never have to worry if the bathroom is clean or the dog towel is on the couch.
        Grandmas day lilies are the old fashioned orange ones. Some people around here call them swamp lilies, but I think they deserve a better name than that.

        Veronica, why can’t I find a ” follow” button for your blog?

        • Reply Veronica February 11, 2013 at 6:37 am

          Oh no Melanie, it’s the case of the disappearing follow button again! Ok I checked and it should be on the right sidebar under the flickr badge above the tag cloud. Thank you so much for allowing me to clutter up your email! 🙂

    I love “bleeding hearts” such a beautiful and intricate flower, isn’t it wonderful to share plants? I smile every time I look out my window and see the plants from my friends’ gardens 🙂
