Meadow buttercup

We have two types of buttercup at Filnore.  I haven't provided a photo of the common creeping buttercup, which is a familiar weed in your garden and maybe in the lawn, with its creeping stems and threefold leaves.  It grows much shorter than the tall meadow buttercup below, which stands tall above the grass.

And look at the divided leaves of the meadow buttercup.  This shows it is the more refined relative of its creeping cousin.

Snobbery among the grass blades.
