in the nick of time
we’ve been traveling so much this spring and summer that i missed bleeding heart season. and it’s not all bad that i did. because when i went over to the neighbors garden to see if i could by chance find one or two end-of-season hearts to snatch, what i found instead were seedpods! if you’ve been with me for a while you know how i feel about seedpods. i adore them. and, believe it or not, i have never before noticed bleeding heart seedpods. (i also found one last stem with flowers–the very last blossoms of the year.) it’s hard for me to believe i have never seen these seedpods before. apparently after the spring blossoms, i have completely ignored the green leafy bush left behind. i talk a lot about how to look closely, how to look past the showy blooms and blossoms of spring and summer, and past the jewel-toned leaves of fall in order to see beyond the easy to the delicate subtlety just beyond. clearly, i need to listen to my own advice more.
