Subject: Bleeding Heart Flower

Anyone know the rhyme that accompanies the pulling apart of the bleeding heart flower to illustrate its component parts? I've been net surfin' for days looking for this -- Catters are always good at finding stuff where other methods fail ;o)

Didn't know there was one, has it anything to do with the fact that my father in law calls them 'naked ladies in the bath'?

I suppose you're not thinking of "she loves me, she loves me not...."

That's the only thing I know to say when pulling apart a flower.

Yes, LTS, the flower is also known lady in the bath because when the petals are teased apart the insides pop up and look like a tiny woman bathing. But apparently there's a rhyme that goes with the other name.

No luck at this page – http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/complants/msg0315080027708.html – but it contains a couple of clues to the rhyme: "It includes the princess's slippers, ear rings,etc. "

How can you tell she's bathing? Does she have one leg up in the air and a sponge in her hand?

did you ever figure this out? I have been looking for this for years! I remember as a child pulling the flowers apart to a saying- but cannot for the life of me remember what it was!

Not to get technical or non-musical, but can some one (LTS?) give the Latin name of the plant you are talking about so I can figure out if it is the same plant we call bleeding heart on this side of the pond?

Thanks, Q. Same plant I know as bleeding heart - and a favorite of mine. Now I will have to go and rip a blossom apart come spring while spending the winter searching for rhymes and folklore about it.

Probably not what you are looking for, but certainly in rhyme (lengthy at that) A legend about the "Bleeding Heart Yard and Lady Hatton"
