Shy little buttercup



Ahh. Nothing better than springtime in Texas. For maybe 2 months out of the year (somewhere between end of February and end of April) we enjoy nature's awakening. Birds chirp, branches bud, grass greens up once again. And the wildflowers appear in droves.

This year we have an abundant crop of buttercups growing behind our barn - thanks, I'm sure, to the multitudinous rains (and snow!) we had all winter long. The bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes are coming in nicely too in the front pasture. But so are those pesky mesquite trees. More on those some other day...
