Cyclamen

Photos by Victoria Gilleland

One of the few flowers I do know by name is cyclamen. Victoria photographed these in Lake Forest Park. But I have clumps of them all over my (dead brown) lawn right now! 

I'm so pleased. I've always had a few show up but I have more this year than ever before. They are white, a very pale pink, and I may have one this shade of deep pink.

I wish they would take over the entire lawn.

Last year the clump in the flower bed got six feet across but then something started chewing holes in the leaves, probably ground beetles, and they weren't so beautiful after that.

So I'll enjoy them while they're here.
