Nice photo Herman........so you are in summer, and we are in time of dormancy.....for a bit longer. Our primroses start to come out soon.

Your photo here, a little color goes a long way. It is a subtle and lovely flower photo.

Two lovely presentations, Herman, I do like to see the white variety, not as common as the blues. Sorry to hear they did not bloom this year, but no doubt next year they will give you a bumper show after their rest Grin Carol
