ranunculus

i've noticed recently that there were lots of posting going on about ranunculus. when i saw these blog posts here, here, and here it made me start to wonder if those tiny little yellow flowers that were beside of my grandmother's house (now my parent's house) are actually ranunculus.

while i was visiting my parents earlier this week i snapped a couple of pics of these cute little guys that always remind me of my childhood in hopes of determining if they were actually ranunculus or not. let me know what you think.

I'm not sure either... the petals look a little smaller than the ranunculus I've seen, but the petal structure is really similar... maybe a hybrid? They're beautiful in any case! :o)

those little yellow flowers mean the world to me. they have been beside my grandma & grandpa's house as far back as i can remember. (this house is where my mom & dad live now since my grandparents have passed). seeing them brings back wonderful childhood memories.
