Colour from the Season - Primrose pink?

The first primrose is flowering in the garden! In Devon primroses thrive - and soon the banks and hedgerows will be completely carpeted with them. Yes, primroses are usually yellow, but these pink hybrids occur naturally and range from the palest pinks like this one, to quite dark pink. Luckily our garden seems to get the full colour range...
