- EASTER 2020
- Whenever Easter arrives, we say that it is the greatest Christian holiday. We always assure ourselves of this, even though Christmas and its harmless joy seem much dearer to our hearts. Because Easter is tough. Despite being surrounded by tiny leaves that are beginning to sprout from their buds, flowers blooming, and tiny animals starting to appear everywhere, on Easter Sunday it is impossible to forget Friday.

- Snake’s head (Fritillaria meleagris L.)
- Snake’s head is a strictly protected plant species from the lily family (Liliaceae). This perennial bulbous monocotyledon rarely grows higher than 20 cm and flowers in early spring, usually producing a single large flower. The snake’s head is a widespread species found almost in entire Europe and in western Asia, but is becoming increasingly rare in some regions due to habitat loss. It is thus featured in the Croatian Red Book as a vulnerable species (VU). Snake’s head is threatened mainly by human activity, including habitat destruction due to agriculture and urbanisation, but also habitat neglect due to discontinuation of mowing and vegetation succession.
