Primroses in the photo - spring awakening

Under the name primroses, they unite all plants that bloom in early spring, sometimes pecking out literally from under the snow. These are very desirable flowers, because they foreshadow the final departure of winter and the inevitable onset of a warm summer. Primroses in the garden fill the heart with joy, give passers-by the first bright colors.

Snowdrops and crocuses, chionodox, spring and blueberry, hyacinths and daffodils, hellebore and marigold, as well as many other early plants will come in very handy in group plantings with late-flowering perennials, on shady areas of flower beds, alpine hills, curbs and lawns. Most primroses have their undeniable advantages - they are quite hardy in terms of temperature and light, excessive soil moisture (although they do not like long stagnation of water), they do not need to be weeded, since weeds do not yet grow at such a time. Most early flowers need to be fed with ash, potassium and magnesium, as well as phosphorus (as soon as buds appear).

Looking at the primroses in the photo, I want to say "how beautiful and amazing our nature is." This is a gift that we take for granted, not always noticing the natural attractiveness, striving, at times, to unnecessary, capricious exoticism. But the modest beauty of drooping, like shy snowdrops, bright irises or fragrant lungwort makes our gardens so familiar that you want to hug every stem, every branch.

Early flowers most often do not last long. Their flowering period is rather short. But even during this period of time, you manage to enjoy the bright holiday of life among the snows and bare branches of trees.

But it is true, having appeared with the first warm rays of the sun, the primroses very quickly disappear. And they all look so fragile and delicate!
