      The pretty rosettes of fresh growth on the London Pride - really happy about this because I dug them up from the garden last Autumn, stuffed it in a pot and it has been outside - yes, in the snow - and is now swinging back into life.

        My primroses are still looking nice considering the snow and cold they have had on them.

                      I thought that I was getting seeds for the wild species! Don't worry, I've found some that I missed including one in flower. I'll let it go to seed.

                        Oh sorry Longk! I thought it was the wild species you were hoisting out, they are the seeds I'm after. :doh::)

                              I am looking at primrose. I will keep looking until I find some fading flowers at good price. I want bright colours so I will have to get lucky I think.
