I am indebted to Lydia for reminding me that ” Mother Nature Knows Best”….it was made in respect of another image where nature had taken charge.
This morning I was again reminded that indeed nature does know best.
The Cyclamen above, have found safe haven under a garden bench amongst the gravel.
They appeared several years ago from who knows where….I suspect a seed deposited with a liberal does of manure from a bird…… It was certainly not planted by us.
Whilst we do have a few Cyclamen about the garden they have all been planted and cared for. Yet somehow they never seem as much at home as the ones above which are ignored and forgotten about till the new seasons flowers appear.
It is true that the cultivated plants are much bigger and they brandish brash colours, but I have to admit to rather liking, in fact preferring, these diminutive flowers with there subdued tints of white with just the merest of a hint of pink.
So may be as Lydia says….Nature does know best.
