It has been a while since I last blogged, and I shall be doing a big round up from my trip to the UK. But I just wanted to share the snake’s-head fritillary, there are quite a few around my hometown in Leicestershire, and I think they are just beautiful! They are stunning with the sun shining through, the little squares of pink and purple line up like a mosaic, the flowers delicately hang from their stem which rises above the other flowers in the meadow. These are along the verge of a path off a car park, and are a wonderful example of how nature can thrive, even in an urban environment. This time of year the area comes alive with wildflowers, butterflies and birds!
