BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP

I have tons of glorious pics waiting to be processed – but do I get to it? Sad smile

However I just have to quickly share this with you.

A mass of buttercups

Buttercups – Ranunculus multifidus – are described in our books of wild flowers as ”said to have been introduced from Europe.” In other words, it is a weed. I love them growing in the wilder parts of the garden, never weedy or assertive, and cohorting perfectly well with the real wildings. But this year one (or more?) managed to grow in a flower bed near the house, where it was watered and fed. The result is a massive cushion of interlocking flower stems tipped with liquid yellow. I would not have thought this demure sequin could have such volume.
