Snakeshead Fritillaries at North Meadow, Cricklade.

This is the time to go to North Meadow near Cricklade to see the Snakeshead Fritillaries. They have bloomed well this year after a mild wet Winter that was to their liking.

We like to walk to the North Meadow along the old abandoned canal from the Gateshead Visitor Center of the Cotwold Water Park. 

Note that one must stay on the public footpaths through the meadow and must not wander about trampling flowers for that extra shot...

These are rare and fragile beauties.
