Today's Flower: Cyclamen


They usually grow in the mountains here in Greece and sometimes in a pot as mine! You meet it in many colours and varieties and it's always a great temptation for me not to cut some of them for my vase!



I dedicate these flowers to the man of my life since he had his birthday,three days ago!!!


Don't ask me about his age! His heart and so
ul are just 20!!!

Happy belated birthday to your husband! The cyclamen are very beautiful. I wish I could have them in the garden, but in Holland we have them indoors.

Your Cyclamen makes a beautiful photo Marina, and I also enjoyed the one of your husband blowing out his candle. I wish him a happy birthday even though I am a bit late.

Please wish him many more happy birthdays from me to! May your love shine like a candle through the coming years.
Do your wild Cyclamen also have a lovely scent? I have some where a small pot perfums a large room, they are so lovely.

I like your pretty cyclamen. I, however, have never owned one. I think that might change.

How nice that Cyclamen grow outdoors there. Here they would not survive the winter outside but they are lovely houseplants. Happy Birthday to your special man!

Anette said...

I've got the same flower in my kitchen window!
