Flower of the week


I really like to brighten my otherwise monochrome office with some colorful flowers. This week, i chose a pink Persian Buttercup, otherwise also known as Ranunculus to compliment the blue vase. Well, it is not actually a vase; it's my lasted flea market find and it used to be a vinegar bottle. 
Bottle-type vases have great narrow elongated necks that provide ideal support for 'solo' arrangements. Persian Buttercup flowers are native to warm climates such as Mediterranean and southwest Asia, they grow up to 50 cm tall and bloom in spring in variety of pink, yellow, white, red or purple shades. When placing cut Ranunculus in a vase we have to be careful to use warm water and only submerge the stem by a centimeter or so, otherwise it starts to rot pretty fast.
