Rare Flowers in Bloom:
Some Haddenham residents came to see the fraucups (snakeshead fritillaries) in the meadow off Lower Road (the road from Haddenham to the Bugle Horn) last Monday evening, 29th April. However, as some folk couldn't make it , the gate access was opened again on Sunday evening 5th May, from 6.30pm to dusk.
That was the first Sunday in May, like the 'fraucup Sunday' of old. Some local residents may remember that there was an article in The Haddenham Chronicles (No 6, the yellow one) by Roy Christie who recalled a fraucup Sunday in the village of Ford in 1944 or 1945. People used to pick all the flowers back then, so that is another change.
If you missed the opportunity this year, watch out for the chance again next year. In the mean time, this page shows some photographs.
