Stunning display of Fritillaries in La Touche wood in La Brenne

Our friends in La Brenne have sent us photos of this year’s display of Snakeshead Fritillaries (Fritillaria meleagris) in the secondary woodland we have been helping to clear over the last few years. What a transformation! Originally (not that long ago) this was meadowland with a good population of Frillaries, cowslips and other wildflowers associated with damp grassland on clay soil. Then it became overgrown by ash trees with some oaks and the flowers disappeared.
