Shocking, ain't it?

We’re currently experiencing a rare albeit extremely freezing stretch of dry weather here in the PNW. I don’t think it made it out of the 30s today. The sun even made a rare appearance – imagine that!

I simply couldn’t endure the winter without my faithful, and oh-so-pink cyclamen to cheer me up daily. It seems that this is the cyclamen’s season and they actually thrive on the winter weather. This plant has not failed to bloom since I got it six months ago. The trick is to water from the bottom. I also have a red one and I gave Willa a white one because her garden is white.

We’re almost one month into winter. Celebrate!
