Here is a plant that may surprise you. If you’re into health food, you recognize amaranth as a high protein grain. If you’re into flower gardens, you will recognize this old beauty as Love Lies Bleeding. So, the seeds are a high protein food; the flowers add beauty to the back of your flower border; the leaves can be made into a tea that helps control bleeding such as a heavy menstrual flow. - See more at: http://www.top1000naturalremedies.com/2014/03/amaranth-love-lies-bleeding/
Leviticus 19:18 Love your neighbour as yourself. Easier said than done sometimes, but truly the best way to live. It seemed a great verse to pair with a photo of the bleeding hearts plant growing in my garden.
Pink bleeding hearts were beautiful in my North flower bed. They are almost finished with their first bloom but their foliage is so pretty I still like they way they look. I cut off the dead flower stalks; I usually get a second flowering in June. So delicate and what a great pink color!
