    Just a small note… Fritillaria and other genera still in the Liliaceae escaped classification because they are the closest living relatives of the type genus for that family: Lilium. It is interesting to realize that until the advent of molecular genetic research techniques, it was quite literally impossible to provide a so-called “natural” classification (i.e. a classification that creates evolutionary groups) for the majority of the major monocot lineages since a vast number of them have so many characteristics in common!!

    What a lovely photo. I like the simplicity of this Fritillaria. How nice to see on the first day of snow in my town. Spring is coming.
    Thank you,
