Fri­t­il­lar­ies

Of all the spring-flow­er­ing bulbs, the snake’s head frit­il­lary must be the pret­ti­est. Its che­quered, bell-shaped flow­ers are of­ten com­pared to an Art Nou­veau Tif­fany lamp­shade, and you can see why, es­pe­cially as the yel­low sta­mens re­sem­ble fil­a­ments. Seek cut blooms in florists or, if you are es­pe­cially for­tu­nate, in a damp grassy bit of your very own gar­den. Cut near the base of the stem and en­joy its del­i­cate, pat­terned petals and slen­der leaves – surely the em­bod­i­ment of fresh spring days.
