Only when we recently went to foreign parts (well Somerset) did I realise that the primroses so abundant here are not all over.
Here, in South Devon, they are amazing right now. Every lane, verge, hedge and hill is with primrose. We have them popping up in the lawn (I carefully move them before they get beheaded by son with his push mower), and our green lane is lined with them
The verges of the A38 are smothered in their yellowness and are a joy to look at, making any journey an uplifting one.
I don’t know why primroses like this area so much, but I am glad.
