Snakes in the rain

We paid a second visit to the water meadow in Cricklade today to see the Fritilaries.  There are many more out this time and there is a significant purple and white haze across the field from the flowers; quite some spectacle.

All the recent rain has swollen the Thames and Churn rivers that run either side of the meadow so we could not quite walk all the way around.  There was a section passable only by those wearing wellies or who enjoyed a long walk on a cold day with wet feet; we opted to turn back, much to the disgust of the children who were all up for paddling.
