A few weekends ago we went on a Sunday afternoon ramble en famille to Iffley Meadows to pay homage to the Snakes-head Fritillaries that were then in full flower. In all these years that I've been in Oxford, I've only been to Iffley Meadows a few times and never in April when the Fritillaries are in bloom so it was about time that this was put straight.
It was far boggier than some members of the family were expecting so there was a certain amount of complaining from some quarters but everyone agreed that the flowers themselves were very striking. Unfortunately, conditions were rather overcast and I've had to tweak the photos a little to add some colour to them. Afterwards, as a reward for traipsing through the marsh we had tea at the local hotel by the river.
