Adonis microcarpa   Yellow Pheasant's-eye

Adonis flammea

This plant likes to grow on the margins of cultivated fields which is exactly where we found this plant. As the vast bulk of cultivation in this part of Europe is under acres of polythene, this was the only recently cultivated field and the only example of Adonis microcarpa we saw on our short holiday in the southern deserts of Spain.
