Portrait of a primrose, bought cheaply - but could you imagine a happier face for a flower?
An Expert Gardener here tells me primroses are considered cold-weather annuals here, due to the warm season's dry and heat. I have placed my pot in the shade where I intend to plant the flower - I am drenching it from time to time with water and for now the weather remains a cool gray. The primrose smiles at the sky and blooms.
