Cherry, Vinca, Bleeding Heart

Cherry Tree in front of Forsythia
My neighbor’s cherry tree (but it doesn’t produce cherries, alas) in front of his forsythia.

vinca or periwinkle
This plant is called vinca or periwinkle. I bought a sizable amount of it from someone who moved to Israel several years ago. It is finally growing in nicely on the side of my house.

Bleeding Heart
A plant named for people who “care” so much about others (really, they identify with them) that they will cause their own hearts to bleed. Hopefully, this bleeding heart plant, which did not flower last year, will be much healthier than that and produce pretty pink hearts soon.
