..nature conjures something so astonishing that only a picture can do it justice.
Snakeshead fritilaries blow me away.
It’s a chequered flower. For crying out loud!. That’s some flabbergasting evolution. You can visit meadows and meadows of them here.
My fritillary is growing in its own tiny water meadow (galvanised bucket with limited drainage).
As though it weren’t lovely enough I had a gobsmacking thrifting moment recently.
Can you spot it?
Yep. A vintage snakeshead fritillary teacup.
Oh my sainted aunt.
