Here is a lovely vintage printable illustration of a Lyre flower, also known as the Bleeding Heart. It has pretty pink heart shaped flowers and light green leaves. I scanned the original illustration from Familiar Garden Flowers, circa 1897, by F. Edward Hulme.

Oh, I have never heard that name for what I call a bleeding heart plant. Lyre flower is pretty. Thank you for this sprig to use.

I’m glad you like it Mary and Peggy.
Peggy, I didn’t know the bleeding heart was a lyre either (until I saw it in the book). I had to do an online search to be sure it was a bleeding heart and not another flower that looked the same.
