    I’ve never seen anything like that in my garden! Interesting.

    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday!

  3. Cyclamen? They’re amazing!

  4. TheDigger says:

    Wow! What is it?

  5. Can you explain what they are? Fascinating.

    • Cathy says:

      They are the seedpods of Cyclamen hederifolium which develop at the end of these curly ‘stems’ – isn’t nature wonderful?

  6. Chloris says:

    All those lovely seeds. Do you leave them to sort themselves out or do you grow them on in pots?

    • Cathy says:

      Up to now I have left them to their own devices but this clump is getting quite congested and perhaps needs to be split – AND it’s flowering now, would you believe?!

  7. Dee says:

    Those are wild! Curlilocks indeed.

  8. I always think its a bit sad when the cyclamen start to bloom – it means autumn is on its way. But I do love them and they are so useful in the garden

    I’ve never seen cyclamen as anything but an indoor potted plant so that’s pretty neat!

    • Cathy says:

      Some varieties of cyclamen are hardy in the UK – this is Cyclamen hederifolium which usually starts flowering in the autumn but this one has started flowering since I took that photo!

    I saw your post earlier in the week and made sure to stop by the cyclamen to see if they’re blooming…. sure enough they had sent up their first stalks.
    I’m also one to get a little sad when the first cyclamen bloom.
