  1. That’s stunning! Is the dappled colour from the rain or was it like that before? Not sure I’ve seen a flower like that before.

      They’re Snakehead Fritillaries from water meadows in Cricklade, one of few places they grow for short period after the wet season (if it’s not too wet!)

  2. What a beautiful pattern of colours on the petals!
