Primroses, Eggs and Solemn Intention Statement

Today is Primrose day and I have taken photos of many of the primroses in our garden. They are my favourite flower, delicate in colour but tough little plants that flower for months. Ours were in flower at Christmas and have grown better and better over the last weeks.

Primrose Day is the anniversary of the death of British statesman and prime minister Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, on 19 April 1881. The primrose was his favourite flower and Queen Victoria would often send him bunches of them from Windsor and Osborne House.

We love getting fresh eggs from friends’ chickens.

The peaceful demonstrations being held by Extinction Rebellion have a Solemn Intention Statement which ┬áis read out morning and evening at each site. Beautiful – one mind, one heart, calm, focused.
