Orchard flower

I have been trying to find a ‘wildflower’ in my books for a couple of weeks – the specimen is in the Orchard, under the lime tree near the Stump Circle. By coincidence we visited Holehird Gardens just outside Windermere yesterday and there it was – it is a variety of Dicentra although I am not sure which and is very different to the ‘bleeding heart’ in our garden. I suppose it may be just a garden ‘escapee’ but does anyone know anything more about it?20140415_123523
