Showy Primulas

Dear Family & Friends

My husband enjoys cleaning our windows and he does a very thorough job...good and bad...because whenever we have a shiny window, sometimes birds fly into it...just like this one. Fortunately, this one just knocked himself dizzy and stayed in the garden ground for a few minutes to recover, thus we managed to take his photo... and he flew away to where he had to go after that! I hope he is all right after that knock!

There's a lot of gardening job these days...I don't know a lot about gardening, so I google to get a lot of information as I go along my gardening way. Primulas or primroses are starting their show this time of the year.

My little girl and I got two pots from a garden centre....don't they look pretty?

They stayed in the house with us for a while.... before we planted them out.

Because I think they would prefer to join the other garden friends outside...   

I would like to see more of them littered in the garden as they are easy to care for plants. Here's more info:

Hope you all had a nice Easter Holiday....Did you know that in Eastern Europe, we will start our Easter next week? Yes, it's delayed by a week... I think its because we live in a bit backward society?? :D  

Whatever you do, keep happy. As for me, I'm going back to do some more gardening:)
