Anne Bradstreet ‘Meditations Divine and Moral,’ 1655

Another of my favourite spring flowers….

Today’s find – these pretty bleeding heart.  I’m always happy to come across something I’ve never photographed before (I found these in a nice spring flower garden on the east side of the Legislative Building this afternoon).
