This Primula is just starting to flower as the Snowdrops have gone over. This plant is a division of the main plant taken last year. I'm delighted to see this anount of flowers on it, and it must really like it's position as I'd say it's about two weeks ahead of the main plant.

Good day, Fran. They are lovely flowers and I am partial to yellow flowers anyway and what better colour on a day like today.

Fran, I find that it is great to divide and it thrives when you divide it. I have also noticed that it likes a bit of sun once the ground is moist. Great photos and you have captured that dark stem.

A really lovely Primula which I must get some of some time ( not that I am dropping hints or anything ) would I!!

Probably one of my favourite Primulas. Saw a lovely lot of them in the Botanic Gardens two weeks ago.

Mary I can give you one. Hopefully we will meet at some event during the year.

Oh Wow....and not even a mark on those yellow flowers either. Gorgeous

Gorgeous primula, Fran, and you must be right about positioning as some of mine are doing better than others, depending on where they are in the garden.

Yes one of my favs too!
