REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Delicate pink billows

I'm not certain 'billows' is the correct term for cyclamen petals, but to me they seem to sweep and flare, ever so delicately, maybe like the wings of butterflies??   I'm linking my cyclamen photos to Macro Flowers Saturday where the most beautiful floral images are posted each week. (All photos are straight out of the camera; I do better cropping in-camera when I'm working in macro.)   Click for closer views.

Billowing works for me, as does the comment comparing them to ribbon! They are so delicate!

I am not successful in keeping cyclamen. Twice I was given beautiful blooming plants. After the flowers, the plant is gone too.
