Friday’s Library Snapshot … a flower or two!!

May 24, 2013

As the Chelsea Flower Show continues this week  I thought I would find one or two images that be a suitable tribute a very English event.  They need no explanation … just to say there will be no prizes for guessing my favourite … which is yours?

    It’s got to be fritillary for me – so simple and so complicated at the same time.
