Meadow Buttercup - Ranunculus acris I love buttercups and was delighted to find so many growing along these coastal cliffs.  They are simple, elegant, cheerful, and vibrant. Once when I was a kid, I rubbed them all over my face and arms in order to turn myself yellow. My purpose in doing so was to convince the school nurse and my teacher that I had yellow fever and thus could no longer attend school. They didn&#039;t believe me and so I had to endure public school...<br />
