This little primrose is quite special. Not only because I haven't seen one like it in a garden centre, but also because of its history. Many, many years ago my great aunt Mary had some of these growing in her garden on a small farm in Galway. She gave a few young plants to my mum and they grew in our garden in Dublin when I was growing up. Then a couple of years ago mum gave me couple. Here they are now, in Co. Antrim. Three human generations and a few plant generations later !
