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.


The header picture was taken by Chris Seymour, the others by Clive Knight, Ian Bushell and Suzanne Humphries.

More pictures of the park in bloom; these are from C.J.Seymour.

Thanks Chris.
