Love the sunshine through the petals in the last photo.
I know what you mean by 'the photos don't do them justice' I have so many attempts to capture their natural beauty but nothings perfect. I think that your photo 4 does!
Looks like a lovely place to walk. Seems to be a good year for them this year. Polyanthus/primulas in my garden are looking pretty good too (though struggling now in the heat).
