We had some great spring like weather yesterday! I wasn't able to get much gardening done since we still have our company here. During a quiet time in the day I did run out to transplant a few of my ever growing zucchini starts into 4" pots. I also managed to plant some primroses that we picked up at the nursery the day before. These are both varieties I hadn't seen before, and I thought they'd brighten up the path area a bit.
Primabella 'Masquerade Mix'
A look at the whole plant. I love the long stems.
Primula acaulis - Primlet
The Primlets have a nice scent to them and I really like the ruffled flower petals.
Primula denticulata - Drumstick primrose
I've actually had these in the garden for several years. The blooms are a tight ball of flowers on long stems, almost one foot tall. It's begun to spread out a bit as well, which I was happy to see.
I wanted to share some pictures of a of another primrose, primula obconica - German Primrose. Unfortunately the snow and cold temperatures earlier in the week damaged the flowers. It is supposed to be fragrant as well. If it blooms again I'll have to see if that's true.
This morning I see rain, that'll help water all these new primroses in since I won't have time to. We have a busy day with my oldest daughter who is competing in the school district "math olympiad" and then an indoor soccer game afterwards.
