friday flowers: seeing cyclamen

I'm unsure about cyclamen. 

I bought one the other week and its moved from the office, to my bedroom, to a shelf in the dining room. 

I like the pink.

I *hate* the variegated leaves. (I feel extraordinarily passionate about variegated leaves) 

But is it an old-lady flower? 

And then I stumbled upon Camilla Engman, who put them into perspective: 

'it looks almost like a pack of sensitive and a little nervous Italian greyhounds with fluttering nostrils'

Too true!

Go and have a look at her blog to see all kinds of things through an artist's eye.

have a good weekend,
