I have a lovely bleeding heart plant in the front of my home that every spring brings me fond memories of my Grandpa.
He would tell the tale of Cinderella to me with the blossoms from this plant. The individual blossoms represented Cinderella in her ballgown.
After the bunnies, you got a glimpse at Cinderella bloomers, all puffy and full!!
The next layer revealed in the blossom was Cinderella's glass slippers, perfect in every way!!
The last thing that appears is the magic wand that the Fairy Godmother used to make it all happen. On the tip of the wand if you look real close you will still see the remainder of the golden pixie dust so you can make your own dreams come true... Well that is how I remember it and that story and this plant to this day brings me great joy in remembering the tale that my Gramps shared with me. Hope you can share this store with the children in your life and spread the love of the Bleeding Heart to many generations to come. It still puts a huge smile on my face with fond and loving memories of an incredible man!! Love you Gramps!!
