Prior to this snowfall I had been warning fellow gardeners in our area not to get caught up in our beautiful early spring weather. “We have had snow in the past as late as March.”
One plant that I remember most from my life in England is the wild primrose “Oxlip” that grew everywhere in the fields near our village. I have had rotten luck getting them to survive here but have a small healthy clump that is on its second spring. Heeding ones own advice I plopped a water bottle over the clump. I removed the bottom of several these heavy plastic bottles which make a great cloche.
What do we have here?
Oxlips in full bloom.
