Yesterday I celebrated the first butterfly photo of 2020. Today I’m celebrating the last of my snakes … Snake’s Head Fritillaries of course, not actual snakes. I had six flowers this year and here’s how the sixth flower has been getting on.
This is flower number 6 as it was on March 22nd:
By April 4th it was looking more like the full grown flower:
It grew a little just by the following day (April 5th):
And finally, here it is today:
Such a beauty! It’s a shame that is the last one, but now I get to watch them grow their seeds as other plants start to grow up around them. There is a lot of other growth going on around the pond so there is a lot to look forward to as spring develops.
I did actually venture out for a walk around the village today. It’s so odd to have to consider whether it’s OK to go for a walk or not. But we’re allowed out for exercise and of course I kept my distance from the few villagers I met. Photos from that walk in my next post 🙂
