Today’s Flowers: Chives, Columbine and Bleeding Heart

Who would have thought that chives up close can produce such pretty purple flowers? I look forward to my sage plant blooming as well; it also produces lovely purple blooms.

This was what I photographed of my columbine plant one week ago.

Here’s the same plant one week later, with an open white bloom.

The bleeding heart plant (dicentra spectabilis) on the side of my house is showing its little pink hearts. After a while, the greenery of this perennial plant dies down, and one has to be careful to leave it alone so it will bloom again next year.
