Texture Tuesday -- Black and White

I look forward to the spring bloom of my white bleeding heart plant--now plants, because I thought the initial plant had winter-killed, so I ordered two more little plants! These don't produce as many blooms as the red bleeding heart, but I love having these in a little shady space.   I'm linking up with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.

A real beauty! I too have been looking for my bleeding hearts & wondering if the Winter got them.

So beautiful, love that heart shape flower. I have to wait a liitle bit longer before they bloom.

It is beautiful, Evelyn! I would never think to make a flower into a b&w image, but this certainly works. Sure wish we could grow bleeding hearts here.

This is very pretty! My bleeding heart is white so I think I need to head right out and take some photos ... if the wind will cooperate.

So beautiful!
We lost both of our white Bleeding Hearts , as well as several roses over the winter. It was just so much colder than normal, and I am sure that's what did it.
