so i'm thinking of primrose as this little plant, maybe 6 inches tall, or a foot. Right?? well out in my yard all summer long i have this monster of a plant with really pretty little yellow flowers on it, i can't really place it. so i'm thinking i'll put a pic on gw and see what they say it is, but i think it might be a huge primrose. nah that can't be. so i look it up. they get to be 5' tall. OMGoodness!! this baby is that no problem!! its taller than me, (which isn't saying much!!

LOL now i just want all the other primroses!! **big smile** ~Medo
