September... with that spring feeling... ?!

Dear blog readers,

I hope you have had a lovely summer and that September and the reality of back-to-school/work did not hit you too hard... Perhaps you even welcomed it?

The leaves are beginning to change colour here in the UK and I find myself seeking out maples and other colour-generous autumn providers, just to see if they are "on fire" yet and marvel at nature's magic. 

And then there is the odd surprise to brighten one's Tuesday. Like the garden of my son's saxophone teacher, which yesterday greeted us with a sea of small cyclamens. Photo snapped with my phone, just before I lay down and rolled around on this pink blanket. No, not really. But very nearly. Decorum is overrated, don't you think...? đŸ˜‰

Wishing you a colourful, flower-rich week!



  1. Helt fantastiskt med alla Cyklamen som en matta! Hoppas att du njuter av hösten och saxofonmusiken! Kramar

  2. GyönyörƱ ez a fotó!

  3. Such a pretty carpet of pink cyclames. I have never seen something similar here around. Maybe because of your climate here? This would be a wonderful idea for the garden. Just have to look it up, at which conditions cyclames will grow that abundand!
    Thanks for the inspiration, Helena! So nice to read from you again!


  4. Great pictures.....i love flowers ...That' s my love love Ria x ❤️

  5. Looks very pretty. Spring here in the southern hemisphere but I envy you a coming winter!

  6. So very pretty, Helena. Thanks for sharing. Makes me yearn for Spring - my favorite season - but, alas Autumn is upon us here in northern California.

  7. Dear Helena,
    the garden you´re showing us looks so lovely. The cyclamen are very beautiful! Two weeks ago I had a lovely England vacation and I was amazed by the many cyclamen I found in various gardens. Back home I planted some more cyclamen in my own garden (only had three plants) as I think they really look great in large groups.
    Best wishes,

  8. Fantastiskt fint. Har nog aldrig sett sÄ mycket cyklamen samlat tidigare.
    HĂ€lsa Luna

  9. So glad to hear from you again! I've always loved your pictures! Cyclamens are so beautiful.Never seen them on the ground, only in pots.
