I’ve always loved Bleeding Hearts but we never had enough shade to grow them, until we had our back yard landscaped last fall. We’re now lucky enough to be graced with their beauty this spring but it was a challenge to shoot them because every little breeze sent those stalks a-fluttering.

I processed this image with Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Contrast Color Range and May Roses from French Kiss Textures.

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    Graceful lines and great colors! The multicolored background bokeh sets the flowers and leaves off so well!

  • Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Celeste! I took this around 6 p.m., a great time for shooting in our yard this time of year.
