I know that it isn't yet Spring, but yesterday, I think anyone could be forgiven for believing it was here. The bluest of blue skies (seen above through the silky buds of Magnolia 'Susan'), warm sunshine and a very light breeze all worked to ensure a beautiful day.
There are leaf buds just waiting to burst out on my blueberry plant, which seems to have come through the winter unscathed.
What could be more appropriate than primroses? A wild, native one in the front and a modern variation behind.
While visiting Mum and Dad, I went to the local garden centre and saw this lovely plant - primula 'Cheshire Life' which is a cross of wild primrose and wild cowslips. I think I should be able to divide it into three with any luck, and dot it around the garden. It really was a perfect Spring Day.
