I have blogged about cyclamen before, but I can’t help myself. LOVE THEM. They show up unexpectedly after everything else is almost finished blooming, lighting up an area of the garden that is kind of dry and boring. One of my gardening books (Gardening in the Pacific North West by Carol Hall and Norman Hall) describes them as mostly mid-pink, but also pale pink, dark pink and white, so the white ones that have recently appeared are not an anomaly.
The book also stated the most fabulous thing of all: No maintenance. They thrive in partial shade, and require dry summers and wet winters. Perfect.
Now all I need is a decent camera so that I can photograph them.
