1st day of Spring

Primroses - 20 March 2015

Primroses – 20 March 2015 – my mum gave me  these

Today is the first day of Spring, International day of happiness and a rather cloudy solar eclipse (more about that soon). I was working at home today,  due to a long and boring electrical saga at work.

There’s more flowers out in my garden including these primroses (primulas). Primulas like a semi-shady spot; they’re happy under trees but don’t like the soil too soggy.  Mine are along my left hand fence in my north facing garden so don’t get any afternoon or evening sun. Primroses are traditionally yellow or shades of cream, but now the hybrids come in many colour combinations – yellow and purple, crimson and yellow for example. I’ve got some really pretty salmon pink and yellow ones in my front garden.

i’ve been planning more adventures – watch this space.

All In all, a very good day, and I have a pint of Pimms too.

    Did you buy the salmon pink ones? Primulas are easy. These cream ones are an older variety I think – my mum has plenty in her garden under the trees and shrubs. I saw got some purple ones in garden centre yesterday so they’re going in this weekend…

    I’m well known for drinking pimms all year round 🙂 have a lovely weekend. Hope the sunshines 🙂

      Thank you 🙂 I’ve got some lovely purple and yellow ones to plant out. Primulas will grow most places but definitely prefer semi-shady especially if they’re under trees. Let me know how you get on 🙂
