Harbingers of spring

Yesterday in front of Rite-Aid were displays of primroses and pansies.
I pretty much never buy primroses. They are always the first flowers for sale every year. I think it's that they don't spread. When I see them in other people's gardens, they seem to just sit in a little clump. I am always glad to see them for sale, though, because it's a sign of spring. But I think they've been putting them out earlier in recent years. Kind of like when Christmas displays go up at Halloween; here, spring flower displays go up not long after Christmas.

The pretty pansies were quite tempting, but I resisted. It's just too early to plant stuff yet.
