Mid-January is commonly the coldest a part of winter in Maine, and that appears to be true this 12 months, with in a single day temperatures nicely beneath zero (F) and daytime highs within the single digits. These are good days to hunker down indoors, having fun with the comfortable warmth of a wooden fireplace and the nice and cozy colours of Cyclamen persica flowers on my plant window.
Fortunately, our coldest days are usually sunny days, and the cyclamen flowers tackle further heat as they glow within the rays of a winter solar.
My potted cyclamen will proceed to bloom all through the winter. Sooner or later, they are going to be joined by the shorter-lived however spectacular flowers of potted amaryllis bulbs.
Backyard Bloggers’ Bloom Day is hosted every month by Carol Michel at Might Goals Gardens. Go to her web site to see the array flowers being loved by different gardeners this January.
