Cyclamen After Sunset
Cyclamen After Sunset

Does everything look better on a black background?  Or is it just that they are dramatic white flowers?

The black came out almost velvety, which sets off the pure white of the petals so perfectly.  There’s just a hint of green in the leaves, enough to provide richness.  I’ve always liked the symmetry/aysmmetry of these flowers; the petals whirl like — well, like the blades of a whirligig.  (Great word, whirligig — wonder what it is in other languages?)

Now I want some article of clothing with a pattern of deep velvety black, white, and rich, dark green!  Or maybe a fabric design?
