Buttercups, a yellow flower seen everywhere in the UK. It probably grows in your garden as a weed.
But have you ever stopped to look at buttercups and appreciate how beautiful they are?
They shine in the sun
They look beautiful in combination with other flowers, such as speedwells
Water of Leith. Some I took today, others over the past two weeks.
Similarly cow parsley is a very common plant in the UK and often overlooked, but look how beautiful it is here in the dappled light under the trees by the side of London Road, a busy road coming into the centre of Edinburgh.
Just because it's common doesn't mean it's not beautiful!

We do have buttercups, just like this! And they are beautiful. I've seen them all my life, but didn't know until a couple of years ago that they were -- well, buttercups. Lovely photos!
Lovely images, the buttercups look beautiful. Happy Monday, have a great week ahead!
Nice post. I agree with you, Buttercups are lovely little flowers and I certainly never tire of seeing yellow meadows.
we have them here and i love them. :)
One of the few flowers from my childhood I cannot get enough of....such a special little flower!
OK - they ARE pretty and big fields of them are very striking!
Lovely images, so enjoyable!
We look beyond, that common natural grace that is.
__I think, in our assumptions of common Nature, we actually make that common rare until reality dawns; then we see. _m
They are all so beautiful. The cow parsley reminds me of a wildflower that we call Queen Anne's Lace, here in the US. I wonder if they are cousins?
Hi Lynn, yes cow parsley and Queen Anne's Lace are closely related, they may in fact even be different names for the same plant.
Lovely shots, Juliet.
