  1. Ooh, how lovely! The primroses are so pretty in the sunshiny photos and really are a sign of spring too! I love your mandala – I shall take a look at the link as I am always on the lookout for new crochet ideas. πŸ™‚

    Such a charming vase. The mandalas are sweet too. Can’t imagine having so many primroses that you can take so many blooms for your mandala.

    • I do have quite a lot of primroses growing here and there Lisa, but it did take some time to find unblemished ones of similar size. They are such happy little flowers to work/play with. πŸ™‚

  3. Such talent you have – intricate, lacy handwork that shines with its primrose blossoms. I like the way the sun has backlit the arrangement in your first photo!

    • You are kind Eliza. The sun just peeped through at the right time, I was glad to catch it as it shone through the leaf. Precious sunshine which has gone again today … we are in for a wet week!

  5. What a sweet display! I’ve given up on primroses given their water requirements but I miss seeing them in my own garden. I notice that our local garden centers aren’t even selling them in quantity anymore.

    • Oh that’s a shame, they are so sweet and delicate – do you have another favourite that gives you as much pleasure as the little primrose?
      You have so many beautifully bold exotic blooms in your neck of the woods.

  8. This is lovely! My husband is always so confused by my enthusiasm for the clock going forward in spring. He bemoans losing an hour of sleep.

    • Thank you Terri, I’m experimenting with using crochet as art – although crochet and flower mandalas can only exist as photos to keep, I think they work together quite well.
