Thanks for looking and commenting Moose, Philipe and Don. Encourages me to get
Big Foot out for more exercise in the garden.
I believe the flower is also known as lady’s eardrops, lady’s locket and
lady in a boat as well as Mary's hearts as you say. It doesn't stick around
and once the flower is gone it quickly withers, not to return until next May.
The less showy "native" Dicentra blooms most of the summer.
Hair today, gone tomorrow, Mike
