Among the first flowers to blossom in early spring is prima rosa – latin for primrose.Single plant may live up to 25 years,forming tiny  yellow hills in semishade .Nice in garden , but beautiful in wild. Jane Austen did have it in her garden.

As kids we would pick yellow flowers  and tried to play on them like on little trumpets.High pitched tone of primrose “singing” mingled with first bees buzz, and we all knew the spring was here.In Slovene language we call primula TROBENTICA (little trumpet).Let them play for you, I found a Pannonia Quartet playing Primula Vulgaris  !

  1. Beautiful blog… you can change your header, if you like, from “just another wordpress site” to something floral, by going to ‘settings>general’ and making magic with your fingers on the keys. I mention this only because your blog is otherwise so elegant, and because it took me some time to find the appropriate settings page myself. I hope this helps. If not, delete this note, please, and carry on. Best, Harold

    1. Thank you, indeed I still am clumsy with all these settings, plus it makes me more fun to write and think as to investigate the settings for I would have to think ,sorry for the paradox but I guess we all like the best to think our way.So I will spend some time trying to adjust the header-I am not happy with it either.
      Wish you a nice day
