Ranunculus flammula, otherwise known as Lesser Spearwort.
Lesser Spearwort is a member of the family Ranunculaceae (Buttercup). Ranunculaceae is from the Latin word Ranunculus and means “Little Frog” because Buttercups look like little frogs? Or possibly for some other reason. I don’t know why they are little frogs but I quite like the name.
Well thanks if you read this post and double thanks if you enjoyed it. I need to know the names of things and I need to notice them. If this little flower has taken the trouble to be in the world then it would be very rude of me not to notice it and not to care about it.
It is poisonous BTW. 🙂
