Snake's Head Fritillary is such a unique looking flower. When in young growth, the flower buds are tightly encircled by the sheathing leaves, and together these poke vertically up through the grass like the nose of a small snake. As their stems elongate, they arc over to ensure that the fertile bits within their dusky, nodding bells are protected from the rain. Once successful pollination has occurred, the stems straighten again so that the seed pods are held aloft on tall, wiry stems, ready to scatter their seeds to the four corners.

Here we have two fairies protecting the flowers during a sudden spring shower. Being caught in the rain is not ideal for such delicate creatures as fairies but they take their role as nature's protectors very seriously, this flower must not get wet inside! They wait patiently, providing comfort. The rain will pass, their wings will dry...and so will the teardrops on the Snake's Head.
