Spring is springing – Snake's Head Fritillary

It’s reassuring to see that despite everything, spring is still springing all around us. Some things are still normal, still happening in the usual spot, in the usual way. It’s all to easy to be consumed by anxiety and fear in these difficult times, so finding something that feels reassuring is especially welcome now. I’m going to schedule a post a day over the next week showing some of the signs of spring found around my garden and village, to hopefully help us all to find a bit of calm among the chaos.

Today we have the Snake’s Head Fritillary. I bought this from the lovely Number 21 Flowers a couple of years ago, and am very happy that they keep on reappearing each spring.

A couple of weeks back there was just the one flower out looking pretty decked out with raindrops
There were more flowers on their way beside it
And a fourth flower just getting started
Today there are 4 flowers in amongst the grass looking very elegant
