Primulas

While visiting a nursery a couple of hours drive away called Lost Horizons, I came to an area where they had some primulas.
 My favourite are the drumsticks and these are in my garden; the rest are a few from the nursery.

The drumstick primula are a beautiful flower. I do not have enough moisture for them. Valerie

The drumstick primulas are wonderful, must look for some of those. The next white one reminds me of a delicate snowflake. Very pretty.

I did not realize that they came in all these different forms. The little primula that my husband gave me for Valentine's Day is blooming all over again. It seems perfectly content upon my kitchen windowsill. I always water it with cold water, which it seems to love.

What beautiful primulas you have. I never knew of so many different kinds. I'll have to look for some for my gardens. Thanks for sharing.

I think I shall look for pimulas. We have primrose here, but the plants that you show are so beautiful.

I love the primrose. They seem very friendly and confident. They are of course also in so many varieties and colors. I wish you a wonderful week! Zinnia

That is a new flower to me. I like them a lot. Maybe I have just not looked for them. The only white I have in my garden is white clematis.

How beautiful. I love your photographs and your mosaic is lovely. Makes me want to sit down and do a painting. Thank you for the inspiration.

Primulas are ever so lovely in the garden. You have a good variety here too.

Zone 3 for me means Edmonton and it does present its challenges. I do like to push the zone boundaries now and then. For instance all my barberries are zone 4 hardy but do great in my garden, even out in the open. Thanks for stopping by The Gardening Life for a stroll through my garden. You are invited to visit again soon!

Those are such beautiful flowers~so bright and cheerful!

Pondside said...

There are so many lovely varieties. No flower is as cheery as the primula, in my opinion. I always want a basket full!

Pamela Gordon said...

Those are some lovely primulas and I have never seen the drumstick ones before. I love them!

Beth said...

The primula are beautiful, Judith. I was wondering if you took any home. Have a great week!

Primulas are so cheery - they bloom early here, one of the first signs of spring. And you showcased so many varieties. Amazing photos. Hope your week is going well.

What sweet looking posies and I love the lacy look of the white ones. Happy week~

Beth said...

I love primroses and auriculas. I've not seen a white drumstick primrose before. Very pretty. Great to have a super local nursery close at hand!

Hi, you visited me and now I'm visiting you back! I love the way you have set up your blog...it feels like being in the middle of a lavender field. I just love lavender. There is a lavender farm near my mother in the Midlands....oh lovely.
I loved your visit to the nursery. I have some of those drumsticks and quite a few doubles that are beautiful...
I think I'll become a follower so that I can follow your journey. Joan

The primulas you have photographed are just amazing--hard to believe they are all from the same plant family! I need to try to do more with these unusual primulas in my garden--I have several of the short ones that are sold all over in the spring, but I want to branch out to some of these more interesting ones.

Jean said...

I haven't seen most of these. They are amazing!

Oh, one day I shall have drumstick primroses in my garden! Love them, but haven't any yet. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pics with us!
