fleeting beauty

I can't identify these yellow flowers in my "Wildflowers of Kentucky" (which isn't restricted to natives, but includes Stuff That Grows Here.) I didn't think they would last well indoors, and they don't.

Less than twelve hours from above to below:

But they're pretty enough to make the frequent clean up worthwhile.


  1. Oh very pretty. That aqua wall sort of behind it sets the yellow off beautifully.

  2. It was chosen to set the cherry furniture off. : ) It works for yellow, too. Those flowers were a challenge to get in focus.

  3. I think it is some kind of buttercup. check this can fill in the information and it will bring up a list of possibilities.
