The name Ranunculus is late latin for ‘little frog’, from rana ‘frog’ and a diminutive ending. A reference to the many species being found near water, like frogs. They are a large genus of about 600 species of plants in the Ranunculaceae – members of the genus buttercups.
I absolutely adore the beautiful flowers created by Jacqueline Butler of Petalsweet! I especially adore her Ranunculus flowers.
Note: The slide that shows a photo of the tools includes a white veiner. You will notice later in the slideshow that I used a green veiner. I found the larger petals were too big for the veiner I intended to use and switched it after i had taken the photo.
Don’t they just put a smile on your face? What’s your favourite flower?
