Celandines - sunshine stars of spring
The Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria) is a true spring delight, covering the ground with golden stars.
That shadow in the corner is me !
It spreads and covers the ground with its heart-shaped rosettes of leaves. It prefers damp ground so it is having a great time this year.
On a cloudy morning the flowers all close up. Why waste pollen to the wind when there are no insects to move it around. But . . . .
'When the spring sun shines
So do the Celandines'
