Primula Macro

First-primula-of-the-season



























I was wandering around the yard the other day not expecting to see anything showing much life just yet.   I do have a few tulip leaves appearing and I have a hellibore that it just getting its head out of the last little bit of snow.   I was very surprised to see several Primula plants putting up their first blooms of the season.   I just had to show you.  
Thanks to Laura at Blogging from Bolivia for hosting Macro Friday a meme to show off your macro or close up shots.    Have a great weekend.   Valerie

What a lovely shot Valerie. I am glad one brave flower is growing for you. The leaves on my primroses are so sad looking but they are starting to bloom. Your Primula is going to be so pretty. Have a wonderful weekend.
