Music among the trees

"Dicentra spectabilis".
Also known as Heart of Jesus, Heart of Mary, Lady's Eardrops, Lady's Locket, Lady in a Boat, Lyre Flower, and Bleeding Hearts.

These flowers look musical. As if the "dots" hanging from the blossoms would ring as they fall, sounding like bells. And each tone would be pure unto itself, resonating in the frequency from which it was created. A garden music box.

"Dicentra" originally came from China. Imagine them gently ringing in the breeze, like wind chimes in the entrance of a shrine, pentatonic harmony.

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
~ Minnie Aumonier

Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.
~ Confucius
