Fritillary flower

By HobbitDave
Normally I am uploading Fritillary butterflies 🙂
This was taken today - thanks kindly to Ju Barney for uploading one yesterday, I thought this one would be much later Up North, but on looking carefully one was out today. They are pretty scarce flowers and a delight to see in Spring.

Outer travel may appear desirable but inner travel is like gold, go within each day to find peace, and the results will amaze you.

Stay safe, folks 🦋

P.S. Worth remembering in UK the clocks go forward 1hr tonight. You might have remembered, I didnít until I read on todays National Trust FB page ⏰

I love these--so happy to see yours---
I have a few that are thinking of blooming---way out of sync.

Seems early to me for these lovely fritillaries.
I have some bulbs planted but don't expect to see them for a while yet!

Beautiful Dave, I wonder if these where the inspiration behind Tiffany and the lamps.
