Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #56.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is the “Tall Buttercup”, also called the “Common Buttercup”. Around this area it is the one most likely to be found, there are only a couple others around here and they are much less common, and usually hard to find. This one is not a native wildflower, but comes from Europe, however it is well established, certainly isn’t causing a problem for our native buttercups and is a nice bright and cheery addition to the wild landscape. Bees, butterflies and various other insects seem to love visiting these buttercups as well. They like sun or partial shaded areas and will grow in fields, at the edges of woods and along roadsides. They can grow from 10 to 40 inches (25cm to 1 meter) tall and the flowers are usually 3/4 to 1 inch (18 to 25mm) across. They bloom from May to October. They can be found right across Canada and most of the US. I hope you have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Oh my, that’s too bad, I’m so sorry it has gotten so bad again. It’s no fun not being able to go out and do things. I do hope it gets better very soon. Here it is much better and all restrictions will be lifted by mid August.
        Have a wonderful Thursday!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜»πŸŒžβ˜•β˜•πŸŒΊ
