Biggest, isn't always best

 Cyclamen Hederifolium pushes up its pale pink flowers as a reminder of the changing seasons.
 Delicate upturned flowers among a carpet of woodland debris.
 They flower for several weeks and are a refreshing change from the perennial border.
An exquisite plant that never ceases to make me smile.
I always forget they are quietly waiting.    Waiting for the right moment.     That magical time when summer is giving way to Autumn.

Have a lovely weekend........

  1. What little beauties. They make me smile too. I wish they would like my garden as well as they like yours. Sigh~~~ I will have to settle for pictures of these darlings of the late garden.

  6. Beautiful photographs. I love Cyclamen and have been given many of them. But somehow I never seem to get them to thrive. So I doubly admire yours.

  9. It's so nice to see such lovely little blooms at this time of year when so much of the garden is starting to fade. I just wish I could grow them here. After our hot summer, I am definitely ready for fall!

    1. Me too Rose.
      Hot and humid weather tires me these days.
      I try to garden but have to take breaks here and there, otherwise I feel awful.

      Hope fall comes soon and you can get some respite.
