fritillaries, banknotes, charlock

Snake's head fritillaries grow in a shady flowerbed. The pale buds hang forward modestly as though not aware of the striking, spotted flowers they will become.

In the bank, the rustle of bank notes drowns the rustle of spring.

Two charlock or wild mustard plants grow in the corner of a wall and adoining pavement. It is a plant you usually think of in hedgerows and fields. Its yellow flowers look lost and dejected.
