The first fritillaries
Julie Newblé and Ian Bushell have sent us pictures of the first of the year’s beautiful snake’s head fritillaries (fritillaria meleagris), which are classified as vulnerable on the Vascular Plant Red Data List for Great Britain.
My favourite flower of all.
They are so beautiful. There are lots in the park this year; look in the hedge between HNC and Brunts Field near the third oak from Fiveways.
