Cyclamen carpet in February
Every year the wild cyclamen pop up in varying quantities in different parts of the garden. I was a bit worried that they shouldn't be flowering in February, but a bit of googling reassured me that any time between September and February is normal for these hardy little things. It looked spring-like in Talloires today, but the temperature was a nippy 3 degrees. Fortunately for our Feb halfterm skiing parties the snow is holding up very well in the resorts, with more forecast.
