We’ve got a few more Auricula Suite concerts this spring, and there are only a few auriculas still in bloom. So, let’s celebrate the season with a gallery of photographs of our favourite auricula flowers from our garden this year.

The Auricula Suite: It all started because we are musicians with a garden full of Primula auricula flowers…
We wrote and recorded a set of songs dedicated to the little alpine flower, the Primula auricula, and its history. The Auricula Suite tells a re-imagined story of a historical journey to a new land. Inspired by folk tales of the flower’s 16th century journey to England with the Huguenot refugees, it is a tale of love and loss, persecution and a new beginning. Listen to a track from the album illustrated by some of our auriculas.
