I do not know what these flowers are. I think they are primroses. They were a beautiful iridescent Blue Violet! It was just one of thousands of beautiful plants that I saw in the English gardens on my English Garden Tour 2015! 

Just to let you know, I’ve been thinking of what I would do with the lottery money that now is up to over 1 billion. One of the things I would do is purchase a garden and lovely little cottage in the UK and hang out with gardening friends that know all the latin names of flowers. Perhaps they would have a class on such at the local Woman’s Institute meeting, for transplants like me, who would like to be in the know. I can only dream! Well, maybe I could start on one flower. If the flower shown is a primrose, it is called primula vulgaris. How could anything so beautiful be vulgar?

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!

    One of my favourite colours! And a beautiful garden with that. I wish it were yours!

    Not primroses – don’t think they ever come in blue. They look like delphiniums , which grow rather tall on a stalk and range from white to indigo on a blue scale. Perhaps yours had fallen over?
