Pretty Primroses

Our garden is full of primroses this year. We had none at all when we first moved here, but a couple of years ago, mum kindly let us take a few clumps of primroses that had self-seeded on her lawn, and they have since multiplied in our own back garden.

I love primroses. Their delicate yellow or pink flowers belie their hardy, vigorous nature and they can bloom for weeks on end.

I only recently made the discovery, however, that primroses are edible. Both the leaves and the flowers can be eaten, so a little culinary experimentation might be on the cards this coming Easter weekend.

I’ll keep you posted…
