    beautiful quote…bleeding hearts are one of my favorites they provide the props for The Cinderella Story–I remember when a friend broke open this flower and told the story… It was magical:-)

      I only know the trick of showing “the lady in the bathtub” – what is the Cinderella story?

      • Robbie says:

        Here at this blog they tell the story with photos..

        In this story, the pink petals represent Cinderella’s ball gown. The white petals are her plain bloomers. Once these are removed, the two parts showing are the glass slippers. The remaining heart breaks into three parts representing the fairy godmother’s wand, gold dust and Cinderella’s crown. Some storytellers point to the remaining seed pod and say it is the champagne bottle for the wedding.”
        I’ve seen told differently, I remember the mice.
