Why Do You Build Me Up...

Buttercup, baby, just to let me down? Now there's a golden oldie...

Buttercups abound in the grassy areas of the vineyard.

This buttercup is much newer, however. At least, I think it's a buttercup. Also known as ranunculus, or renoncule in French. Common French names for it include bouton d'or and grenouillette.
