Sometimes I forget to stop and smell the roses. Or the primula in this case. I had just set up my booth in mid June at the Van Dusen Garden Show. I could smell this gorgeous sweet fragrance and thought it was coming from the gardens. On the first day of the show a customer walked into our booth, smelled the Primula florindae on our table and said: "I just love this fragrance!" And I said "Oh yes. Isn't it wonderful!" Sweetly fragrant, citron-yellow bells. Flowers in June and July. Loves moisture.
