Ranunculus is such an ugly word for such a beautiful flower, don't you think?
But kind of fitting to the ugly spiky bulbs from which they grow.
My ranunculus bulbs have been soaking for 24 hours ready to plant out in my little mound of soil by the plum tree.
I really hope they grow well because I think ranunculus may just well be my favourite flower.
