Lesser celandine (Ranunculus ficaria) is a member of the buttercup family and like other members of the ranunculacae family it has splendid flowers.

It loves moisture and shade and flowers briefly at the beginning of the season, from February onwards. This small patch is flowering along ‘the woodland path’. The Royal Horticultural Society gives advice on how to eradicate 'this persistent weed’.

For this gardener, the flowers are welcome – and lovely.
