 A couple of new primulas that I bought at the grocery store to brighten up the windowsill.

Next spring, I'll plant them outside and hopefully have them to enjoy for several more years.  I like the  white accent on the pink flowers and the strong contrast in the cream coloured ones (they look white in the picture but they are actually cream coloured).


  1. I have some very hardy ones that I have planted on the edge of my shaded planters around the house. From only a few plants 20 years ago I now have almost a 25 foot line of them. They are my first flowers to bloom in the spring. Well at my place more like very early summer as they are covered in snow till sometime middle of April. They certainly will brighten you place up.

  2. It is so nice to see such bright colours this time of year. And to have these beautiful harbingers of spring.

  3. How makes me yearn for spring. Only 4 more months to go!
