I saw a blanket of yellow something on the side of the road so we stopped to investigate. There were lots of these beautiful little yellow flowers with 8 petals. They looked like Buttercups, but the Buttercups that I knew had just 5 petals while these had eight.
I did a little research and realized that they are called Fig Buttercups which are low-growing, hairless perennial flowering plants in the Buttercup family. They have fleshy dark green, heart-shaped leaves and distinctive flowers with bright yellow, glossy petals.
A nice splash of bright color to wish you all a Happy Easter from Cape Cod!
