Cyclamen leaves


Cyclamen leaves

I took one leaf from each cyclamen plant in my garden. I find the patterns fascinating, and for some reason, very christmassy!

They are very pretty Karen. I like them too. Very intricate. The florist cyclamen is my favorite plant for inside. I think the leaf and flower are beautiful. I like them as much as orchids.
Although, I cannot get them to re-bloom . But I have hard time to make orchid re-bloom also.

You have quite a collection of cyclamen there. But I've noticed that you have nice collections of many other plants as well.

Thank you Klahanie. Most of my cyclamen are hederifolium or bedding cyclamen. I do have some coum corms, but no sign of them yet, but it is quite early for them. As you know, I love plants, always have actually. I have quite a few Roses and I love my Heucheras. My first 'collection' was of Clematis, but I have learned that it is much better to have a few of them because they take a lot of feeding and watering, not to mention the pruning, spraying........so I am keeping to a few in this new garden. I also have trouble getting orchids to rebloom, but I have never had much success with indoor plants.

Yes, I know that you are a plant lover Karen and I feel that the move to your new space last year made it so much more enjoyable as you have a bigger playground there. I also have a feeling that you will fill it pretty quickly:-) Your garden will look very beautiful when it matures. I like your open spaces as well.

Thank you! I need to maintain the open spaces for the dogs to run about in. And you never know, I might be a Grannie one day, and will need space for children to play. So I won't be digging out all of the lawns....nope, definitely not! :)

Good thinking :-)

very pretty, think it reminds you of Christmas because they look like the frost has caught on the edge and think also they remind me of Ivy leaves too, lovely colours and shapes.

Yes, that's what Scott said. The frosty effect.

These are pretty leaves. You have quite a few different ones there.

What a good idea, a clever idea to photograph just the leaves....
