Spring is just around the corner ........


I have just discovered a white Cyclamen Coum doing its thing under a shrub – and further into the gloom under there … its pink sister!

Not the most exciting specimens, but a pleasant surprise, nevertheless.

My daily daffodil inspection has found a few buds, and the snowdrops are opening out! Bring it on!

I love them even when they are in hiding.

I have some that do that too, but partly my fault as I planted them in a bit of ground that was bare in spring and in the autumn they are overgrown by the summer stuff.

I do like them but have never been successful with them, they just don't survive here , only place I have them is in a basket...

I have hundreds of the Cyclamen Hederafolium, which self sow prolifically all over, and Coum does, but much less so. They are in the bare ground under a Fatshedera where nothing else will grow - I just forget they are there....! (There may be a cilium there somewhere, but I’ve forgotten what it looks like).
