The Banks Of Sweet Primroses

The Banks Of Sweet Primroses was a favourite song of Southern England, collected many times from the late 1800s right through to the 1950s.

The photos are from The top © Andrew Tryon – primroses on the southern slopes of Ben Bhraggie Nr Golspie, Scotland. The lower © Simon Barnes – a black kite over a field of primroses. I saw my first black kite only a few days ago. By the time I’d got off my bike to take a photo it had disappeared.
