Primroses! They are only available for a limited time but their timing is impeccable. Just when the clouds of winter seem as if they have taken up permanent residence, these little bursts of color and green leaves make their way into the local garden centers, ready to offer a pick-me-up, and for a minimal investment. (Our local Lowes had these for $1.98 each.) My empty cache pot was happy to have some "company". They were welcomed with a wrap of moss and are sitting pretty on my French parquet top table.
Oooh, la, la! Spring is just around the corner!
