We have some colour again, at last! Today, I found these dwarf cyclamen in flower, which cheered me up a bit. Besides anything else, I love all purple flowers, and these look so wonderfully delicate, even though they are actually quite hardy, and come up year after year. Nearby, there are some narcissi or daffodil shoots, but we shall have to wait patiently for the flowers…It's kind to share!
Today, I looked around my garden to see what flowers had escaped the effect of the frost. This red cyclamen was just about all I could find.
Note the leaf that is included on the left; it is on a sage plant, a popular herb at this time of year!
