First Fritillary

A moment of beauty in an excessively busy, and gloriously sunny, day - in Kensington Gardens the first fritillaries are in flower, white ones. I'm sure I've written before about my love for fritillaries - and the butterflies of the same name fly through this blog in numbers every summer - but it is still one of the great joys of this time of year to see the first in flower. And the snakeshead fritillaries are very nearly open too... Now, back to work.


  1. Excuse me, writing about butterflies and flowers is your real work. The other stuff is just stuff you do because someone pays you for it.

  2. How true. And I saw my first snakeshead fritillaries today.
