A Few Surprises Appearing In The Garden

Fritillaria meleagris Snakeshead Fritillary

Walking around the garden, now that Spring has arrived, a few surprises have appeared that have not been seen before. The first, on the Nuffield Lawn under the beech tree, is a Snakeshead Fritillary, Fritillaria meleagris. The second, found in the orchard grass, is a Cowslip, Primula veris, two beautiful additions to the Worcester College gardens, that will, hopefully, multiply in years to come.
