Squill and celandine

A portrait of a squill flower with a buttercup (lesser celandine) in the background:

Lesser celandine is a flower I’ve been ignoring – I found it at the Arnold Arboretum next to the squill, which is just about done for the season. Unlike the one-foot-tall common buttercup, it’s low to the ground, leaves form mats, and the petals are less shiny.
