The monsoon season has started


Sue and Ric gave me this beautiful cyclamen as a thank you for Ric's cake last week - which is a bit of bonus actually as I would have made a cake for Zac's anyway: it was only the decorating that made it extra! Thank you, Sue and Ric!

I love those flowers...

... what I love most of all ~ and never knew the name to call them: I think they are called pompom dhalias or something... variegated origami entertainments of roundness... exceedingly funky things ...

ps I saw a doggie just like George who's called Hugo in a Slavic Republic...

I too love those flowers, but find them hard to keep alive for some reason?

I know the things you mean, gledwood. they look unreal so they're so perfect.

It was very wet, james!

It is, A and cherrypie.

Linda, you are welcome to the rain. We've had more than our share this summer!

Hi Gill. They are known to be difficult to look after - I shall leave mine to husband's care as I have the touch of death to house plants.

Lovely :)

Though, by the title I thought your post was going to be about all the rain that fell yesterday?!! Don't tell me you didn't have any because I know where you live!!!!!

So give me a clue to the title? Have I missed something?

Liz said...

No, suburbia, it was just a reference to the rain. Nothing deep and meaningful!

I love cyclamens, and they come in so many great colours. Very nice gift.

I love cyclamens too! One of the few plants I can keep, actually, since they thrive on neglect. Most people overwater, apparently, me, I tend to forget to water mine, so cyclamen do OK. I can't keep them to flower again though. :(
