I’ve always called these checkered tulips, which they are not; they are fritillaria. A very cute early spring bulb flower, just showing in my garden now. I was charmed to hear them called snake’s head flower, something new to me. The buds DO look like that, don’t they?

Almost looking fake, these fritillaria are also called snake’s heads.
