pots on the doorsteps, always a nice welcome home.
primula 'marie crouse'
primula 'pettycoats'
and an unusual frilly, pale daffodill. its come up in the border and I don't think there's very many of them, my favourite ones are an apricot colour but think they come up quite late.

:-) Very cheery thing to see first thing this AM (besides the shock of snow!).

Flowers now -- and a promise of more to come!

Spring is not here yet. It looked like it and now suddenly it is colder now than it was all winter:( But no snow for some reason.

I can't wait to put pretty flowers by my step:)

BTW I got SUCH a kick out of your reaction to my hair post:) LOL

Wildside, hope your snow event is over soon, roll on spring please!!
Lowa, some of the doorstep flowers were stored in a cold frame so they're maybe out a bit sooner than they might have been. your hair is too fab!!
Arlene, sorry, wish I could share! photos is all I can offer.
Grannyfiddler, oohh chilly... herbs always like a windowsill.
Andrea, thankyou, you probably have more snow there than here.

Katarina, spring flowers lift the spirits after a long winter.
Dora, they're cheery little plants, hardy too!

A very welcome sight, Claire. You have some lovely primulas.
Do you have any trouble with mice eating your tulip bulbs in the cold frame? We're going to try that next year. Ours were in the garage and the mice had a banquet. Luckily, they don't like hyacinths.
