Ranunculus In Spring

We visited Delicious Orchard on Sunday.
I usually share pictures of the inside, the incredible food, donuts, bread, 
bakery items, cheese, produce...all the things your favorite farmers market would sell.
Today, as we went in, a huge display of ranunculus surrounded us.
I decided to share pictures of those instead, plus, the place was packed.

These spring flowering plants need to have their bulbs planted in the fall 
with your daffodils and tulips so they sprout up strong in the spring.
Ranunculus means little frog, there are about 300 species,
and they make a great flower for a cutting flower garden.

After shopping, it was warm enough outside to sit and have some food.
Delicious Orchard has an outdoor grill and lots of picnic tables, 
this was our first "picnic" outdoors this season!
