Drumstick primula

This the spring incarnation of the Christmas orange studded with cloves. The drumstick primula is a globe of flowers each comprising five lavender mauve petals deeply lobed into heart-shapes that meet at a rich yellow centre that drops down into a long, golden corolla tube held in place by a deep plum calyx.
Along the path from the Brookside Gate, it combines with the stiff brown fish skeletons of last year's fern flowers, the yellow and orange crown imperials and the royal blue, satiny flowers of the early lungwort, Pulmonaria 'Royal Ensign'.
