So pretty,Neena,and what a shame about the pink ones..Are they all new this year? I only have white ones in flower from last year,and no sign of other colours,and I didn't buy any this time..I wonder if you have nasties in that planter..:o(

I love to see them and am sorry that you have lost the others.
Something eats the tops of my dwarf daffodils in our garden. Could it be birds?

Thank you Bathgate lovely aren't they? lots around the garden too :o)

Thank you Sandra, the pink ones I think were eaten by birds no sign of nasties in the pot as the leaves/roots are fine just the petals nibbled away! I have both pink and yellow ones in the garden that have been there for years all ok, these Primroses and another pot full were a gift for Mothering Sunday :o)

Thank you Wildrose, I think it is birds I've seen blue tits sitting on the pots but it could be snails but there were no tell tale trails or sign of them around the pots so possibly the same with your dwarf daffodils :o(

Thank you for liking Steragram, Klahanie, Bjs, Thorneyside and Hywel :o)

I think it's the birds Neena... :o( This has happened to my friend's pink primula's! Joyce is 96 years young and is most put out about the birds pecking her Mother's Day gift!!!

Ah! pigeons were your culprits, There are a pair of collared doves here but they don't venture closer than the trees, the yellow Primroses are still looking good and some pink ones are flowering again, perhaps the birds will be too busy now it's Spring! :o)
