Ranunculus Flower Art

Ranunculus Flower
According to Wikipedia, the Latin name means "little frog", purportedly because of the frequency with which the wild plant is found growing near water.
It's hard to believe that the modern ranunculus flower, which these days can be such a complex bloom in terms of color and form, is related to the humble buttercup.

From experience I know that ranunculus are easy to grow in your garden provided you add dirt, water, and lots of sun.

Here is a gallery of ranunculus flowers I have captured this spring.
