Cyclamen and Ice


Just a few photographs for a Saturday night. I am still thinking of the Photo Challenge topic of Hope. The Cyclamen bud, waiting for its time to flower, to fulfill its purpose. Hoping to provide beauty for our enjoyment. I visited a friend and could not resist taking some shots of her beautiful Cyclamen. The first photo is along the walkway at our home. One of the bushes still has a few red berries, covered in ice. I hope you enjoy.
