Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

Here's a Wednesday Vignette from the new plantings in my back garden, in the northeast corner under the Douglas firs, which I wrote about in "Gardening My Ass Off Part I." It's Cyclamen purpurascens, which has scented flowers. I planted four or five of these in the border, each with slightly different leaves. I hope they seed around and naturalize like some of my other Cyclamen have done.

Anna at Flutter & Hum hosts Wednesday Vignette. Check out her current post here.


  1. Your cyclamen is sweet. Soon you'll have a carpet of them back there. Hooray!

  2. Scented and a beautiful color! Only one of my Cyclamen has reappeared so I'm forced to conclude that we're just too dry for them.

  3. I love Cyclamen purpurascens. Mine bloom from spring through fall. Hope yours seed around for you!

  4. That is so sweet and lovely. Too hot and dry for them here, so I will enjoy yours from afar.

  5. So cute! I hope you get a nice, big patch soon!

  6. You can dream through the winter of big swaths of Cyclamen.


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
