Yes, both these photographs are of the same type of flower! It is also commonly called Lords-and-Ladies, and has many more folk names as well (my favourite is 'Kitty-come-down-the-lane-jump-up-and-kiss-me'!). The flower (top photo) appears in April and May, while the fruit (bottom photo) appears in July and August. It grows in woods and hedge banks, mainly on chalk or limestone.
