I was struck by the way this hybrid primrose gradually changes from almost the standard pale yellow to pink, the flowers becoming darker as they age. Each petal is heart-shaped with a bright yellow splash, which put together, forms a starry centre.
Looking more closely at the flowers, it was surprised that some have five petals, others six and a few seem to have seven(ish). I suppose it is possible that this is actually a small clump of seedlings giving the appearance of one plant. It’s along one of my walks so I’ll have to go back and see if I can get any more clues next time I am passing.
Shared for Becky’s BrightSquares, HeyJude’s Life in Colour and Cee’s Flower of The Day. How could I pick just one to support with so many excellent challenges running, when the picture fits them all?

Now you gave me an idea to close closely at the petals!
Whatever the challenge, these pink beauty is definitely an eye-catcher.
And today is Primrose day too (although it wasn’t when I posted it).
So pretty! They look like they’re made of a frosted glass.
They do – the paler flowers especially.
Very nice flowers 🤩
