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
