Bleeding Heart

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 26 June 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I can't help but think of actress Marlo Thomas from the show "That Girl" as the pink portion of this flower resembles Marlo's hair.

I loved that show!!!!! I will never look at bleeding hearts without thinking of her now! Beautiful image

@Ruthiebear: Glad you saw that, too. What's odd is that I am not that old to have watched the show and I wonder how I connected the two.
