Friday, December 01, 2006's a holiday on primrose lane...

Due to the warm spell (temps today forecasted in the 70's) a few plants are still putting on a brave show and flowering. This primrose, Primula X polyantha must be confused, decided this must be spring already and threw out these few battered flowers. The other primroses are green but don't show any signs of blooming.

We must have bought hundreds of primroses in the past. They are such a pick me up just when you've had it with winter. It seemed such a waste to just throw them out after they bloomed so 2 years ago we stuck them in the planting beds and to our amazement they survived. This is one of the first ones planted outdoors.
