Day 152: Something Beautiful—An idea and ranuncolo giallo

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

Love the idea of exploring beautiful words with beautiful images. Love that in Italian, buttercup (the common name for this lovely flower) is ranuncolo so close to the latin genus name.

I adore this color. A deep, rich, and gloriously warm hue. The ranunculus. A fascinating mystery to me. Petal upon petal. Densely packed and held preciously. Simply squisito.
