FOTD – March 2 – Cyclamen

Technically Summer has finished here, but it seems there will be more very hot weather ahead for a little while longer.

So i’m more than pleased that despite the ‘old’ century plus weather (37.8C) we’ve endured on many occasions my cyclamen plants have not only survived outdoors but some bloom quite nicely. 🙂

I love these little ‘up-side down’ flowering plants – the flowers bud with the opening bud hanging down like snowdrops but then their petals turn up ‘behind themselves’ turning themselves inside out, leaving the sepals underneath the flower and pointing downwards!
