Bleeding Heart -- Photo  Chris Carvalho/Lensjoy.com Previous Next

Send Card

Bleeding hearts are one of the sure signs of spring in Pacific Northwest forests.  These were growing in Washington in the Columbia gorge along the trail to Hamilton Mountain, one of my favorite early season hikes.  I took this picture in Spring 2000.  The leaves in the background of this picture add so much to it.  The ones at the bottom are from the Bleeding Heart and the ones at the top belong to the Salmonberry.  

The Bleeding Heart's botanical name is Dicentra formosa.  Recently I had the good fortune of taking a photo workshop offered by John Wimberley, a famous black-and-white photographer.  When he saw this print he said "You can almost smell the flowers."
