Lovely lovelyI've grown thembut they don't do wellhere in Midwest USAor I am just not doingthem rightsmiles..whooo whooolove those owls tooDeena
What a sweet little stand that is! A real asset to your garden.Brenda
Hi Deena......auricula in pots are much easier as you can give them exactly what they need......Love that owl......
Thank you Brenda, I like it to....
Hi Cheryl, I love the little dark blooms as well as your plant stand. Smart idea!
Sometimes that is the only way to out smart the little critters
Cheryl, I love the deep rich purple of the petals, the plant stand is so pretty, and what a very ingenious way to outsmart Mr and Mrs Bunny.
Never heard of Auricula before,adorable flowers.Gotta have that stand!!Very artsy against the brick wall.
I can see why you like them so well Cheryl. They are little beauties. I am sure anything that pretty tastes good, especially to the rabbits. Those rascals. I wish Poppi and Riley could come over and help with the ova epidemic that we had here this Easter. My Grands are a little too old for such exercises. Too bad for me. :(
Pretty little flowers. I like them too. I also like your vintage plant stand. It looks just right to display your auricula.
I'm not familiar with auricula, but they look so familiar. I wonder if we have a different name for them in the U.S.? How clever of you to outsmart the rabbits, Cheryl; and I love that vintage plant stand.
Rabbits, so cute but how they love fresh spring growth. I have never heard of this flower. I do like your flower stand.
Your blog is very peaceful. I was going to put you as a blog I follow but wasn't sure what tagging is (And saw that it makes you grumpy) So, if you could let me know if you wouldn't mind if I follow you, I would appreciate it. Thank you
Funnily enough they are not a flower I like, Never have done, don't know why really!
so lovely, glad you found a way of still growing them away from the bunnies. i have never heard of these but they are beautiful. i love the stand and the simple pots you have them in. it's great to see and learn about new plants.
I remember reading or seeing some time ago that there is an Auricula society and some people specialise in collecting only them and can become quite obsessive. They look just right on your stand.
Hello Cheryl, I don't know this sweetie pie flower name ...I love meeting new flowers. It looks like you've found a good way to have your flowers and keep them from being eaten, too! Have a good afternoon....gail
Great idea to protect the lovely little flowers. It's a beautiful stand.
Hi Lisa.......how old are your grandchildren?? They grow so quickly don't they??
Hi Rose Auricula are a member of the primula family....so I expect you have seen them.....as for the rabbits, the kittens are about, and there is even more damage in the garden......for the first time ever, many of the tulips have disappeared.....strange they are not supposed to like them!!!
Hi Libby....it would be boring if we all liked the same thing.....I think you either love or loathe Auricula.....
Hi Marmee....that is one of the things I really enjoy about blogging....seeing new plants....and different ways of planting......passing our ideas on is great fun, don't you think??
Hi ShySongbird, I have read that to....obsession is not for me but I do like them very much. I split mine every year and give some away......sharing is more my thing.....
Hi Gail....I always have to be one step ahead of the bunnies.....
Dear Cheryl,They are charming! They look like the Primroses we have. They are not hardy for me. I do love having a few every year just because they are so charming! I treat them as early spring plants the same way I do the pansies.Sometimes we have to put the tasties "up" where the rabbits cannot get them. There are so many treats in the gardens for the rabbits. I am thinking about netting my lettuces and peas this year.Your plant stand is very pretty. I am enjoying your garden this Spring!Sherry
Cheryl, these are lovely plants. I don't blame you for not wanting to share with the rabbits-they are way to pretty. Hope you are doing okay. :)
