“Bleeding Heart”

“Bleeding Heart”

“A garden provides much needed respite in a world of uncertainty. Beauty and familiarity are a much needed commodity.” – Ed Lehming

A very brief post today. Simply a photo to bring some joy to our lives.

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

This is my very first attempt at macro photography. Simple image of bleeding hearts in my garden. I love the shape of the flower and the components that make it what it is. The blossom reminds me often of the quote above. All too often we hear and use words without heart and need to be mindful of that.
