Great! I can enjoy in here.


Buttercups have been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl. They grew wild in the empty lots near the beach. You can tell how long ago that was because, in SoCal, there isn't an empty square inch any longer, much less an empty lot! Nevertheless, they squeeze through every now and again, bringing me no small amount of joy when they do.
And look at you! You have a whole meadow of them! Sublime. Simply sublime.

It's Winter here in South Africa and we live in a cold area. Lovely to see your summer buttercups.


Beautiful. X


Golden and glorious! The fields look divine in this light. And we've just passed the solstice too. Good news down here in Kangarooland where we shiver and wrap ourselves up! Soon will be the small signs of Spring!


Just beautiful!❤️
Thank you for sharing 😊

Oh wow, how beautiful!


So beautiful & those photos bring a little sunshine to my day, which has dawned cold & overcast here in Victoria. Thanks for sharing, take care & hugs.


The meadow is beautiful, and your photos do it justice. However, please be aware that the flower itself is poisonous. Here's an exerpt from my poisonous flowers handbook:
"All buttercups contain a compound called ranunculin. When the leaves are crushed or bruised, ranunculin breaks down to form an acrid, toxic oil called protoanemonin. Contact with this oil causes dermatitis. Symptoms occur within an hour of contact and include burning and itching along with rashes and blisters. When the leaves are chewed, blisters can form on the lips and face. If swallowed, severe gastrointestinal irritation can follow, accompanied by dizziness, spasms, and paralysis. The toxic oil is also irritating to the eyes."
Take care out there.


It's absolutely beautiful. And how glorious it is out there at the moment, I am holding on to it all for all I am worth. Flowers and bees and sun and green everywhere. Utterly blissful. Hope you are having a lovely summer. CJ xx


How beautiful!
