Morning Primrose

Because my house is full of stinky dorm laundry.

Because  chaos reigns here.

Because learning a new computer and photo editing program at the same time is too much.

Because it is cold and raining outside and may be very cold where you are.

Let's look at last weeks sunny explosion of morning primrose in the garden.




Dianthus is in the background.








I planted one of these pink flowers two years ago. 

Now I must have five hundred.


If only interest on savings accounts could do that.

  12. I had those same flowers - I was told they were primrose. And they multiplied so rapidly that I couldn't believe it. That's great until I decided to pull them out. I couldn't get rid of them. But, finally, I got them all out. I was making new flowerbeds and they were a lot smaller. But, they were pretty.

  13. Well, they sure are pretty even if they do like to multiply! (Glad there are no snakes on this post).

  14. Unlike Pam above, i was hoping to see Ms. Rat Snake in the primroses! Did you start with a plant or seeds? Do they need sun or shade? Does Shelley eat them? My Scout has dug up almost all of my over one hundred ginger lily roots and ate them in one year. This is a wonderful reminder of what we should be seeing instead of stuck indoors with the chill and rain. Though I will not complain about rain.

  24. Olive,
    since my thumb isn't green, so glad you share yours with us! Primroses are some of my favorite flowers, (that I don't grow)! Yours are gorgeous and yes, it's been rainy and cold here too! Can't wait for the sunshine to return, maybe Tues or Wed.

  28. Olive, You are learning, it seems. I am afraid what will happen when I get a new computer and what will happen if I don't :):) I love all your pretty flowers. Friday and Saturday here was the best weather ever...I would love for spring and summer to be that nice and pleasant. Today was too chilly and cloudy and some rain. I hope our weather straightens out, yours too. xoxo,Susie
