Thanks for asking Kerry. I'm ok. I am missing her. She was always by my side on the couch. The other cats are loving the extra attention. Lily was buried next to Gizzy who died a month earlier.

@gjones do the flowers last long on yours? These seem to turn to mush within a few days

2w
comment
gjones

@kez001uk Yes I'd say they last a couple of weeks. I think ours are called auricular primula so they're probably a different variety.

2w
comment
ublaszko

Wow, that's some superpowered primula. Mine last meagre 3 months in the spring. They stop flowering in May once the weather starts to warm up.

comment

@gjones I googled them and they look lovely! I think they are different though so explains why they last so long 😁

@ublaszko I do keep them in shade all the time. They live in a cool damp area and seem to be thriving there 😛
