Yellow sunshine will come...

Fig buttercup

Soon these will be flowering (at least in New Jersey)! The photo is from last year, but I have heard that they have been seen this year already. The species is Ranunculus ficaria, svalört in Swedish. Here in NJ it is an invasive weed in wet areas (but pretty), in Europe it is native.

Sunshine, I wish it was so, here the rain is falling from a lead-grey sky! But the snow melts still!

A good day to be inside and work.

Very pretty. There is something that looks like this in a lot of Portland gardens and I have no idea what it is! (Other than some kind of Ranunculaceae.)
