Beauty in the Greenbelt: Bleeding Heart

One of my favorite Greenbelt flowers is the bleeding heart flower; they are so small and delicate. On June 9, I took what I think is an amazing photo of one of those plants.

To me it looks like a bleeding heart flower birthing a seed pod. I look forward to learning how and when to harvest and spread the seeds. Even more, I look forward to seeing a lot more bleeding heart flowers in our Greenbelt restoration site next spring!


A New Leaf is Born

On Friday, this banana leaf shoot caught my eye.


I found it interesting to look at the leaf-in-the-making up close.

When I went to the garden on Saturday, this was what I saw.

On Sunday, I had a big surprise awaiting me!

The new leaf felt like soft vinyl. I wish I had been present at it’s moment of birth.
