Primrose

The delicate yellow flowers of the primrose are another welcome sign of spring. Meaning first rose it is neither a rose nor the first of our spring flowers.
It is native to Britain and reminds us of our youth as when we were "courting" we took photographs on a sunny bank in the delightfully named Waterley Bottom near Dursley.
Primroses seem to like moist conditions and thrive in the hedgerows of the south Cotswolds.
