Little Blooms ...

Good Morning!
Today I thought I'd share with you some snaps of what is in bloom at the moment, there's quite a few so I hope you are sitting comfortably!

First up are the old reliables, Primroses! Some may find them boring but they are one of my favourite flowers, with their bright cheery blooms that are good in all weather what's not to like about them. This year I seem to be drawn to the more natural yellow and white colours, although I do have a few bright colours in the front border that I planted a while back!

However you may recall I ordered 3 plug plants of the Primula 'Cobalt Blue' a few months ago, well all three have started blooming, one is adding some colour to the conservatory and the other two are planted in some Hanging Baskets.

The pot of 'Snakeshead Fritillaria' has also come into flower and as you can see I have been graced with a white bloom which I think is my favourite!

I also have my first Auricula bloom of 2015, I couldn't help but bring it inside so that I can watch it open, albeit very slowly. All I need now is the other 48 to follow suit! lol

Outside the flower bud on the Anemone 'Harmony Pearl' I bought last month is slowly starting to unfurl.

The Pulmonaria from my Parent's old garden is coming into flower, the leaves are looking a little tatty but the flowers are a good distraction!

There's also lot's of promising looking buds on the Hellebore ...

Finally over in the Greenhouse the Primula 'Gold Lace' that I divided seem to be taking well and some of them have started developing flower heads. I know I should really pinch them out to help the plant focus all it's strength on developing, but the teeny flower just looked too cute!

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend!


  1. Hi, Nat! Isn't it lovely to see the first flush of colour in the garden?! I treated myself to a trip to the garden centre last weekend, (when we had that really mild Saturday) and came back with a couple of erysium and some pretty primroses - which got a beating by all the rain on the Sunday! They still add a splah of colour and brighten the garden a little, though I have to say I am super jealous of your Cobalt Blue ones, thay are AWESOME! Gonna have to get my pallets soon ready for construction! xx

    1. I can never resist bringing Primroses home at this time of year from the Garden Centre lol
      Here is the link to where I got the Cobalt Blue from -

  2. I am glad that you said from my parents old garden, and not from my old parents garden nat lol
