A meadow of snakes

snake's head fritillary

The hail is flamenco-ing on the velux and I am remembering happy days.

This photo was taken at the very end of March 2016 at Holbrook Garden. I was visiting this wild and wonderful garden with the grand dame of Little Ash, Helen.  A meadow of Fritillaria meleagris, the snake’s head fritillary, was particularly spectacular, with its nodding heads of mottled purple interspersed on occasion with an albino specimen.  Great beauty indeed.
