Bouton d'or


Les renoncules (genre Ranunculus) sont des plantes herbacées, annuelles ou vivaces, de la famille des Renonculacées comportant près de 1 500 espèces. Elles ont un port très différent selon les espèces et sont le plus souvent des végétaux herbacés vivaces. Aux latitudes tropicales, ce sont plutôt des plantes d'altitude.


Le nom dérive du latin rana signifiant « petite grenouille », car certaines espèces aquatiques poussent dans les marais peuplés de nombreux batraciens, ou parce que le fruit s'apparente à un têtard = petite grenouille = ranunculus.


Ses autres noms ou surnoms sont : grenouillette, fleur de l'impatience, « goblet du diable » à cause de ses propriétés toxiques. Certaines espèces sont surnommées « fleur de beurre » en allemand (Butterblume, parallèlement à scharfer Hahnenfuß) et au néerlandais (boterbloem) et « tasse de beurre » en anglais (buttercup, car lorsqu'on les place près de la peau, celles-ci produisent un reflet jaune qui évoque la couleur du beurre).


Le nom de « bouton-d'or » est couramment donné à plusieurs espèces de renoncules à fleurs jaunes

This is the full colour version of the one I posted a few weeks ago, the River Thames at Erith, Kent 20 minute walk from where we live, taken in the late evening with the tide out, I could not believe that sky almost forgot to take photos! taken on fujichrome slide film and scanned in!


The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.

This receding storm produced a tornado a mile from where I lived. The colors and layers were amazing, and no one photo can quite convey the grandeur. Colors ranged from icy turquoise to intense golds and pinks, and everything was swirling and counter-swirling.

I am not a friend of November. Dark days, wet and cloudy, dull and cold is the normal mood of this month. This year Novermber started with perfect weather and we enjoyed a great Saturday fishing pike and trout.

A little farm down the road.

There was a large brush fire burning down the road which caused this sky.

Just wanted to try something different, so opted for a look without any rocks or foreground interest for a change.

Sorry if I haven’t visited your recent uploads lately, have been busy.


Thanks for your comments and feedback and have a fab day.


watching the end of the world...

Awesome sunset in Whitby!

I'm really digging these dramatic skies at the moment.
