This is a flower that caused me some confusion when I arrived in Texas since it shares a name with a different flower from the UK. My family kept mentioning “buttercups” but all I could see were these large, yellow flowers while I was looking for tiny yellow ones instead.
During the spring, it’s quite common to see one of other of our boys walking around with pollen-covered chins as they check to see if they like butter (by holding a buttercup under the chin and looking to see if it’s yellow colour is reflected).
