Just when I thought there could be nothing lovelier than the first narcissus of spring...
...the ranunculus appear and steal the show.
Both Artist Son and Tayta proclaimed that I should "plant more!" next year, prompting a search which led here, to Eden Blooms. Their prices are great, and ranunculus rhizomes are so small and light, I'll be able to pack some in my suitcase when we return to Jordan at the end of the summer.
Edit: another good site with many helpful tips for growing ranunculus
