Little hearts in a row

Little hearts in a row
A lot of people have a photo of Bleeding Heart flowers in their photostream, but they are beautiful flowers : ) Saw these at the Reader Rock Garden on 25 June 2014. This garden is situated on a hillside and it often tends to be windy whenever I go there, lol, so these delicate branches of little pink hearts are a bit of a challenge to keep in the viewfinder.

"Lamprocapnos spectabilis also known as old-fashioned bleeding-heart, Venus's car, Lady in a bath, Dutchman's trousers, or Lyre-flower is a rhizomatous perennial plant native to eastern Asia from Siberia south to Japan. It is the sole species in the monotypic genus Lamprocapnos. It is a popular ornamental plant for flower gardens in temperate climates, and is also used in floristry as a cut flower for Valentine's Day. It usually has red heart-shaped flowers with white tips which droop from arching flower stems in late spring and early summer. White-flowered forms are also cultivated." From Wikipedia.

Today and tomorrow are the last couple of days of the 10-day Calgary Stampede, and then life will return more or less to “normal”. For visitors to our city, especially, these days are full of excitement and interest. For many of us who live in Calgary, whose children have grown, the tendency can be to get in the car and drive in the opposite direction, away from the noise, the crowds and the smell of grease that fills the air down at the Stampede Grounds.
