  1. You are getting the Spring variety of Nature. That flower looks very interesting…fritillary? Don’t think we have it here in Melbourne, Australia. It’s pretty. My garden has recently had a good pruning and now light shines in. That should get some things growing, especially the philodendron that spreads itself.

    • Yes, it’s a bit of an odd looking flower, but I really love it. It’s snake’s head fritillary or fritillaria meleagris native to Europe.

      Good job, we’ve done our pruning too; just as well or nesting birds would stop us now.

      I had to look up philodendron, I don’t think I’ve seen any here. I like the heart shaped leaves.. I may have seen one in a butterfly exhibit where it’s kept really hot! If it likes the heat, the UK is not a great place for one!

      • Philodendron come in different varieties…my garden is the ground-cover type and, yes, I like those heart-shaped leaves too! They don’t flower. Often I used to have one that is a climber for indoors. Melbourne Australia is cool temperate climate. Being near a heater works well for the plant and not over-watering it, much like a monstera deliciosa.
