Ranunculus Florentine

Ranunculus smile brightly at us in this month of September during the day, and sleep at night.
I am glad that I tried growing ranunculas this year, the garden look so happy. 
Rayyan also enjoy looking at them very much.
We were surprised that ranunculus bulb look like this when it arrived in the mail box.
Yellow-coloured ranunculus, the first colour to bloom in our garden.
Different shade of red-coloured petals and layers.
Development from the first set of leaves until bloom. Ranunculus grow well in pot too. We mixed planting with jonquil in the same pot. Jonquil has long finished it season and now in its replacement in this pot is ranunculus turned to shine.
Ranunculus make such a good cut flower. Ilhan brought some for his kindy teacher.
Ranunculus remind me so much of poppy.
Spring fever in the garden this time of the year.
However, I have been knock down by virus at least a couple of time this Spring September.
It has been a Silent September in Kebun Malay-Kadazan Girls Blog.
I feel much better and was cheer up by all the comments.
Mmmm...better in spirit but I just got another cold (second transfection).
It will take me sometime to visit and reply.
Thank you.
