last year i posted a picture of this flower and a lovely reader, Taylor from the mac and cheese blog, informed me that it is in fact fritillaria meleagris, or commonly known as a Guinea-hen Flower. i am forever greatful, because this is the most gorgeous flower in the universe and i didn't know what it was. the pattern on the petals is magical and i can't wait for it to bloom every spring. i just wish it lasted longer. and now that it's spring and nice out we can keep our front door open, so the daily rainbow is also back.
