Things progress.

Spring favourite, Bleeding Heart, Dicentra formosa is forming a gentle carpet beneath the fir trees.

Meanwhile, in the garden, garden-variety bleeding heart, Dicentra spectabilis, is doing its showy thing among the azaleas and peonies. (More on the two Dicentras, here.)

These geraniums, yet to do much more than get a bit leafier (for here they are evergreen), find themselves charmingly decorated by falling cherry blossom petals. It is a very pleasant afternoon.

Dicentra is one of my favorite spring bloomers. Mine have been a bit late this spring appearing.

Late here too, PG.

The geraniums with cherry blossoms are lovely.
