Sheltering Under The Fritillaria
I remember planting Fritillaria bulbs (also know as snakeheads, due to the pattern on the petals) as a child and being completely transfixed by how unusual they seemed when they flowered. Now I still hold that love as they are one of the few bulbs that flower in the winter months, casting away the winter blues.
Here a field mouse looks up as it takes shelter under a small cluster of Fritillaria.
The glass dome measures 21cm height and 15cm in diameter.
