On a recent walk with Bruno, I was amazed to see so many Buttercups... like a sea of yellow flowers! Obviously it was too good a photo opportunity to miss! Bruno + Buttercups + Motorola G = these photos!
A few random facts about Buttercups:
Buttercups are a large genus of flowering plants called Ranunculus. It has yellow, shiny, petals, and grows wild in many places. It is poisonous to eat for humans and cattle, but when dry the poison is not active.
I’m sure we all remember holding a fresh buttercup flower under the chin of a friend or family member. If a yellow reflection from the flower's shiny petals can be seen under the chin, the person is said to "like butter".
"Build Me Up Buttercup" was the name of a popular song by The Foundations during the 1960's.
In 1916, an elderly man went around a field painting all the buttercups blue.
