The buttercups, bright-eyed and bold, Held up their chalices of gold To catch the sunshine and the dew. (Quote by – Julia C.R. Dorr)

Golden May Buttercups stretching across the Fields provides the carpet I walk when out with the dog! Getting all poetic, but they at least bring some sunshine to any dull day!
It is prudent to mention, before looking at its medicinal virtues, that all members of the buttercup family are poisonous and therefore should NEVER be taken internally. Any one who has sunbathed in meadows where buttercups abound may very well have discovered blisters on their skin which take a fair period of time to heal. This caused by the sap in the stem and leaves that cause a reaction on the skin
