Cee’s FOTD (flower of the day) theme—COLOR!

Even though this post is my Flower of the Day (well, Flowers of the MONTH), I was inspired by Debbie Smyth’s “A Rainbow of Doors”, a wonderful collection you should go see!

Here’s my “Rainbow”:

And even with all those flowers, my personal favorite is still the Primrose. Truth be told, it’s because they are the most difficult for me to KILL! 😉

Cee’s FOTD (Flower of the Day) Primrose

Couldn’t resist posting for Cee’s Challenge today because the Primrose is my favorite flower. There is something delightfully symbolic for me in the fact that one flower genus can have such dramatic variety of species…(did I get that right?)

Kind of like people…

I have to confess, I started liking them because I had a more difficult time killing them than any other flower. (My thumb is a dirty brown, not at all green!)

But I fell all the way in love with them when I discovered the true meaning of the word “perennial”. They show up year after year after year, and always at my lowest point, in what should be the dead of winter. These beautiful little bursts of color are just hard to keep down!

This is a reminder I need in my life!

The Camellia adds its color…so many shedding blossoms landing right on the Primroses

The Primrose has become our neighborhood’s official flower. Every new neighbor gets primroses in honor of our history.

Here’s a post from a while back. Hope you’ll read it and let me know what you think.
