Grey but dry... so far

Monday, 02 Jul 12 Overcast 20°C / 68°F

The primrose is the one I bought in the winter and which I planted out into the box with the little azalea in it. It has had successive flushes of flowers and this is the latest. It was a little pale by the end of the winter but has regained its colour outside. I guess I had better add it to my garden but where?

    I think I rather like the ‘Westerland’ rose more than Crazy for You!
