[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cyclamen coum, the eastern sowbread (so named because the roots are reputedly eaten by wild boars in Sicily), is quite rare in Israel, appearing in the Upper Galilee and the Golan Heights. In those altitudes, around 1000 m a.s.l., snow falls a couple of time a year during the blooming season of this little flower, seen here two days after the latest snow.

Cyclamen coum is native to two areas. The main range is around the Black Sea, from Bulgaria through northern Turkey to the Caucasus and Crimea, and a disjunct population lies near the eastern Mediterranean, from the Hatay Province in Turkey through Lebanon to northern Israel.
