Not sure it's the same variety as Amy's but cream/yellow ones grow wild in the woods near me as do the white ones.

No, I've never seen them before either. I had some white ones, but never seen lemon or cream. Lovely!

It's interesting isn't it , They are very pretty and are exactly the same colour as the primroses growing around them I wonder if it's a process of cross pollination , Brian do the ones in your woods have primroses growing round them ?

How interesting, we have white ones, but have never seen yellow before.
