Some Galanthus peshmenii in flower in Turkey last week

They really do grow in clumps in nature...

I admit I am not a collector.  I just grow a regular and double forms of whatever is sold as Galanthus nivalis here in the U.S.  So leaves are already pretty well developed at bloom time.  Would you say G. peshmenii is among species that bloom before leaves are developed (as in the pics) or is this an aberration (or just early in the bloom cycle)?

they always bloom before the leaves develop although some do have the leaf tips just showing through. It is the same with G. reginae olgae from Greece

Really gorgeous Cyclamen plants! :-* I esp. love the one growing out of the hole in the rock! I have one plant of C. cilicium indoors under lights and it is just now sending up new leaves. These are the most interesting leaves I have seen on the Cyclamen I've grown so far.
I'm really enjoying growing all Cyclamen from seed...it's fun to see what leaf patterns will emerge. ;D

Cyclamen cilicium growing near Akseki,Turkey

Amy's message was posted whilst I was correcting a typing error which is why it appears before my cyclamen post.

Such pristine and clean colors!

What kind of pine drops those needles?

I understand it is Pinus halepensis

Not the greatest pic I know but it was quite heartwarming to see the flower buds form on this "winter flowering" Cyrtanthus mackenii at the same time as the winter flowering Jasmines - indoors of course.  Love that yellow color.  Fran
