Cyclamen Spirals

I hadn’t noticed before how Cyclamen flowers emerge on a curled up stem which unfurls a bit like ferns do. While we were at Compton Acres on Saturday I was photographing a lovely patch of Cyclamen and found the curly stems very cute and appealing. I really must get some Cyclamen for my garden!

Unfurling

The Flowering Currant over by the village pond is one of the first places to look for unfurling leaves and flower buds, and it won’t be long until there are actual flowers. Looking forward to some nice cheery pink flowers 🙂 Here’s one from last year 🙂
