Sunny and cold here too Pdoc - no yomping done but a trip to Homebase for dust sheets completed - does that count?

SL, not only do my roses have buds, but my summer flowering clematis have them too!

If you look at and and feel the leaves and they're triangular, they're probably Allium triquetrum - another name is Three-cornered garlic.

Just been on a trip to Homebase for decorator's dust sheets, so I picked up some suet/mealwork pellets to scatter on the ground - those together with the Waitrose Essential Raisins will get some of the ground feeders interested

Pretty garden Lyn

Yes primulas like slightly damp and semi-shady positions - think of them growing wild on hedgebanks and the sides of ditches etc. 

The ones in the churchyard are probably damper than yours (churchyards are usually a bit damp for some reason)  but in a little more sunshine so they're flowering early.  I'm sure yours will flower in due course - I don't really expect primroses until March although of course they delight in proving us wrong

We had some natives flowering in November, but none at the moment although the little clump of Wanda-type is full of buds.

why is there an N in the middle of the word " environment" . seems somewhat superfluous to me.....

 

It's not superfluous if you pronounce it as it's suppose to be pronounced

Are the ones in the churchyard in a sunnier spot?

Or maybe your primroses have been in situ for several years and are a little congested?  If this could be the case I'd split them in the late spring/early summer - primulas really respond well to division
