I’ve been waiting for this cyclamen to bloom for months now. It doesn’t look like much and it is obvious that I have a lot to learn about getting gift plants, even those as hardy as a cyclamen, to bloom again. I do love cyclamen and when ever I fail with a potted plant I remind myself that it cost less than a bouquet of cut flowers from the florist, and gave me weeks and weks of pleasure.
Finally, blooms outside too. These snow drops are growing under an apple tree. The vegetable garden and raspberry patch are just to the west – both still covered with snow. Maybe it will disappear in another day or two. We had snow flurries on Sunday. Fortunately, not the kind of snow that accumulated. It has been a very long winter.
I am beginning to see shoots elsewhere in the garden. Daylilies, Siberian iris, and daffodils. Hallelujah!
I want to give credit to the abutilon. Still blooming. See posts for January and February.
