Dave, a pretty Linum anyway! Hope the Primulas survive!

Here's one that is currently doing okay Trond. Admittedly it's a purchased plant that has only been in my possession for a week...... ;D ;D

Primula capitata.

Cheers Dave.

I do love this one but I have a hard time keeping it! I plant them near my stream in part shade, but they never stick around for more than 2 seasons. :(

I had several last year but the very bad winter (dry and cold) has finished a lot of them, I'm afraid  :(

They are so pretty Claire! And your Trillium next to your P. 'Snow White' is also looking gorgeous!

Claire, if this isn't spring, what then is spring?

The calendar spring arrived yesterday (March 20th), accompanied by the worst storm we've had this winter in terms of wind, rain, cold temperatures, and hail.  But anemones are pushing up, julie primulas are blooming, and in a couple of weeks (weather permitting) the garden will be wearing its spring garments.

Here the first day of spring is March 1st although much of the country still is snowcovered.

Snow flakes fell here overnight and this morning, but the ground is too warm for anything to stick.  Primulas are pretty tough characters and will come through the cooler temperatures without pausing.
