Cyclamen Celebration

November 28, 2012

I have not put up holiday decorations yet, but after I bring my cyclamen inside each year it seems to have its own little party with all its bright blooms.

We got this cyclamen plant as a house-warming gift seven years ago.  I keep putting it in slightly larger pots every few years.

Here is what the flowers look like before they open.  They are like little closed umbrellas.

Thanksgiving meant a car trip to Minnesota.  We had a lot of time to look at the countryside.  Stephanie and I fooled around with our cameras.

There was just a little snow left on the side of the road south of Red Wing.

We saw a lot of farms where growing things is serious business.  Not much is growing now, though.  It’s a good time to dream about next spring.
