Bulb by Anna Pavord

I was pleased to see that the book Bulb by Anna Pavord has a section describing fritillaries.  Since learning about these flowers for the first time in March, I have seen both yellow and orange varieties in bloom around the neighborhood.

The yellow Maxima Lutea

The orange William Rex
