    Bleeding Heart, a favorite of mine...No longer Dicentra's now Lamprocapnos spectabilis. Gee thank you taxonomists for a truly ugly and difficult to pronounce Latin moniker for this plant. One more reason for people to hate Latin nomenclature.

    Pelargonium (zonal geranium) culture. Including overwintering tips. Royal Horticultural Society...they know their stuff.
