First Primroses of 2013

The mild weather we've been having for the last few weeks have brought this Primroses into bloom, but a sudden frost will probably put an end to the emerging flowers. Even if they survive the frost it will be pointless, as far as the plant is concerned, as there is no insects about to pollinate them.
The buds, which just started to open, are covered in frost

As I was walking back along the same road, I spotted two small Dandelions that had joined the Primroses in their futile effort to flower at this time of the year.

Apologies for the bad quality of the photos, but it was getting dark and the flash didn't work well with the flower shots
