Snakeshead Fritillaries catching the morning sun in my garden. These flowers traditionally grow in flood plains, perhaps they are looking good this year after the wet winter.

I have never seen them massed in the wild and we are busy this weekend when they should be looking good - maybe another year. If you want to see them in their natural habitats,  there are links to places to see wild fritillaries here.

So beautiful! Like a little bit of elegance in the yard even :)
