Sowbread

An individual flower

An individual flower

It’s rather an ugly name for such a pretty flower, which otherwise is called wild cyclamen.

Apparently it used to grow in such abundance that farmers fed the tubers to their pigs.

Sowbread clump

One of many clumps

They’ve appeared all over the ground where our neighbour has been cutting down trees to enable him to build a fence – pink dots wherever you look. I must have never noticed them here before.
