Fairy Flowers


By eirlys


Since re-organising our pond area and having had the towering hedge decimated we have added cyclamen to one of the banks. We like these little plants and they really add a splash of colour as I hope you will agree.

They are very pretty. Anything colourful is a bonus in the winter :)

Agree, they are so bright and cheerful. Fingers crossed for a mild winter!

We have a "colony" in another part of the garden and they have spread. The ones you see here are mostly from last year.

Not sure if the South is as "sunny" these days but so far Autumn has been very mild.

These are lovely Eirlys and they have such lovely foliage even when the flowers are gone.

Stroller: We like variegated leaves as they obviously show up more in the hedgerows.

They are lovely, such dainty, exotic and appealing little flowers - definitely 'fairy flowers' in my book. Also amenable and hardy, great for naturalizing.
