Bleeding hearts

Close up of red, heart-shaped blossoms hanging on a vine. The blossoms are open at the base and have a part hanging at the bottom, which looks like a drop of blood.

The bleeding hearts in my yard carry a lot of symbolism for me this year, for a few reasons. They’ve lasted longer than expected this spring, which is fittingly symbolic as well. Hoping for brighter days ahead as these blossoms fade for the season.
