Cyprus cyclamen

My best wishes for a Happy Christmas

Cyclamen cyprium is an autumn flowering cyclamen endemic to Cyprus.

The leaves are heart-shaped, toothed or shallowly lobed, marbled above and purplish below.

The flowers appear before the leaves and are whitish with a pinkish M shaped blotch at base

Cyclamen cyprium is found in moist, shaded places on igneous or limestone formations. It is a widespread and common species from 50 to 1000 m.

The other leaves at the upper part of the photo are Geranium purpureum and the leaves at the lower part of the photo Theligonum cynocrambe.

Hello Christodoulos,
Sorry but I have been absent from TN due to health problems. This composition speaks of "photographic insight"!! The different shades of green captured against the dry leaves in the BG inspires a person to value life now as the past is gone forever. A Fabulous presentation with detailed sharpness, light balance and clarity my friend.
Best regards,
May you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.
