With a short bloom season normally, White Bleeding Hearts (Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘Alba’) didn’t have much of a chance this year. They appeared one day and were gone the next.

Wonderblue, a French hybrid cultivar, is also known as Little Boy Blue Lilac. Its scent was non-existent Saturday when I shot this, probably due to the fluctuating weather here in Salt Lake.

It’s that time of year in Salt Lake, and I love tulips at this stage.
