Welcome to another floral friday!
This week I decided to feature another beautiful and colorful flower - the ranunculus. I paired it with a few branches of willow catkin.
I love the intense colors the ranunculus comes in and how robust, yet delicate, their round heads look with their great amount of petals.

A few facts about the ranunculus:
  • the latin word ranunculus means "little frog".
  • blooming season is in spring.
  • the ranunculus species, when eaten fresh, is poisonous to cattle and other livestock.
  • their bulbs are cheaper than other bulbs and are very easy to plant.

    what are rananculus, tulips and roses I find to be hands down some of the most sculptural, elegant, and gorgeously colored flowers ever. again, I can't help but appreciate your bold color choice and the way the orange and yellows pop against it:)
