Tim, my first observation was 'Buttercup' but the erect stem does not appear to match the key for Creeping buttercup and so I chose the Globeflower ID on the basis of the spherical flower. Kind regards
when you see flowers of globe flower you'll know the difference instantly. It has lots of petals (not just five) and they scarcely open at the top. The leaves are dark green and shiny and not hairy too - very different plant.
By the way, the two pictures seem to be of different plants as noticed by Ophrys
There are apparently leaves of repens in the first picture, but surely the second picture is not that species, is it?
My Flickr photos...
Good point - in fact looking for the third time the first could be acris stems with repens leaves. They seems to be two different plants photographed anyway
Thanks Tim and Ophrys, There was something about this small group of Buttercups that stood them apart from the others. I now know there is R. acris, repens and bulbous in this 'patch'. In fact it was the plant in the second photo that attracted my attention. Hopefully, I will recognise a Globeflower when I see it. With respect
