Shade Garden

Despite being trampled and mistreated flowers are blooming in the shade garden. Here are a few photos taken this afternoon.

Bleeding Heart – People say they are old-fashioned and boring but I disagree. Its unfurled, reddish foliage is one of the first signs of spring and the flowers look like crazy fifties bouffant hairdos or milkmaid bonnets.

Violets – A diehard anti-purple person who likes violets — go figure.

These are not from my garden but when I saw them it reminded me that spring is nearly over.
