Oh my goodness how I love ranunculus. I love them only just slightly less than peonies, and on odd days only just slightly more than peonies. Look at that luscious, ridiculous, profligate, buttery beauty. The audacity of it! To have a beauty like that, and to display it out in public, for all to see. This flower has no shame. No shame at all. Did you ever? Does it make your head swim? It makes my head swim. Pure, three-dimensional sunshine on a cloudy day. Exquisite. And they contrast so well with that unicorn sedge, don't you think?
