Bulbous Buttercup (Ranunculus bulbosus) is in full bloom on my front lawn in Standish. This is the first of the big three buttercups of the year to bloom. It can be recognised by the bent-back sepals under the yellow petals. It prefers slightly drier ground to the Meadow Buttercup (Ranunculus acris) which is just starting to flower.
