These unique little flower heart purses are so precious, and so welcome in May. They love full sun, but I have mine planted in an area that’s become shady so the flowers aren’t so plentiful, nor as large, so finding the blooms each year is a little celebration. That’s another area of the yard that needs a little cleanup, including trimming some trees, so I’ll see many more little purses each spring.
Along with other spring-blooming bulbs and annuals, I have this planted near the little concrete sleeping cat statue in the area I consider my memorial to the cats I’ve lost. I have a sprinkling of all their cremains in the soil under the kitty statue, and nearly all the plants, several of them native plants, are traditionally significant of remembrance.. . . . . . .
