Morning everyone 🙋‍♀️ I’m not sure whether the top flower is just hitching a ride or trying to devour the bottom one. Have a super day #snakes-head-fritillary #fritillaria-meleagris-snakeshead

Are you sure Jane? They look more like daffs. I’ll post a picture of mine...

4w
comment
pelly

Well I thought that Jacqueline, but my plant label says Fritillary so I just assumed this was them, maybe they’ve not come up yet and I have got daffs in this area. My defence is that I’ve never grown them from bulbs so I don’t know what I’m looking for. 😂😂

jaynehynesburton

I agree look like daffs Jane

4w
comment
pelly

Thanks Jayne, I realise that now, I think it was just wishful thinking. I've not grow them from bulbs before so I didn't know what I was looking for, and as they are planted in this area I just assumed they looked similar @jaynehynesburton 👍😘
