ABC Wednesday

The letter this week is R, which stand for Ranunculus.

Here is the Ranunculus that grows in my garden,
 better known as the Persian Buttercup

It blooms at the same time as the bleeding heart, the oriental peony, the apple blossom, the lilac
and just before the iris

and it makes itself quite at home, wandering the garden all summer so that in the following
spring it shows its lovely face in hitherto quite unfamiliar places.
it does bear watching - inclined to be much too intimate with all its neighbours,
and even the flowers across the garden path
and over into the next bed....
For more great Rs visit here at Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday, with
thanks to her, to Roger and to all their helpers.

I think these were some of my parents favorite flowers to grow in our garden.
I really hadn't thought about them for many years.
Thanks for the beautiful memories Hildred.

So beautiful...and making me so homesick (as these grew beautifully in our Oregon yard).

Just a lovely garden. I love each variety.

Thank you for your comment on Whitsuntide. How nice that you were all dressed up in white. We also had much white in the church to celebrate this day.

I know this is an ode to Ranunculus but I just love those Bleeding Hearts.
