Queen of Hearts?

I have six bleeding heart plants outside my studio window and wanted to share their delicate structure with you all. I especially love the way there are tiny water drops heading down the white center stamen, a surprise in my photo. Their beautiful color, interesting heart shape and little flaps to the side create such intrigue in their construction. Yet they hang together in tiny rows gently swaying with each and every breeze that comes their way. Mother Nature did it again and somehow she is even making me think of the Queen of Hearts of Alice in Wonderland. I know, my mind wanders in all directions but it's never dull :)
