we didn’t plant it in our garden – it just appeared. i assume it came from one of the bird feeders that we fill with black oil sunflower seeds. it’s gigaaaaaaaaantic. it never occurred to me that you could plant the seeds ( duh! ).
i might have to plant more than one on purpose next year.
a.k.a. phoning it in on the 365 project. but seriously, if anyone knows what it is, let me know.
more blossoms around the snowdeal yard. the bleeding heart legend makes for an interesting read:
“In the story, a young man tried to win the love of a young lady. He did this by giving a pair of rabbits (which are the first two petals of the flower), a pair of slippers (which are the next two petals of the flower), and finally a pair of earrings (which are the last two petals of the flower) to the girl. She continued to reject his affections, and, heart-broken, he pierced his heart with his sword (the middle part of the flower), which caused the bleeding heart.”
keep calm. chive on. maybe chive blossom vinegar should be a thing this year.
more purty peonies in bloom around the yard. i *think* this one is a dayton peony.
