Bulbs, Flowers, Gardening, Primrose Gardens, Sally

This week’s theme is Brilliant Blooms; we are going back to basics and focusing on the pure beauty of flowers. We have been loving your photos on Primrose Gardens and all the hard work you put into making them look spectacular, what could complete a  garden more than flowers in full bloom?

From the bright and friendly to the unusual and peculiar, here are this week’s flourishing flowers:
