Mutant Buttercups
These tiny flowers are ranuculas or buttercups, photographed in 1987, and were growing 6 1/2 miles north-northwest of TMI. The bloom on the top left is normal, with one center. The top right and bottom left both have double flowers, while the lower right flower appears to have no defined center. Other buttercups sometimes had very twisting stems or the stems grew fused or double.
