Among the more pleasant garden surprises this year is the return of the Dicentra I purchased at Figaro's last spring.

This shade-friendly plant (aka "Burning Hearts") was planted in a pot by the north fence, and did well. Then, one cold December morning, I looked out the window and saw that the pot had became a leaping platform for cats. Being December, I never got around to moving it, and all but gave up on its return.

But now it is back! In a new pot, and a new location. Like all plants that surprise us this way, we afford them special treatment.
