Bees in butter

The buttercups are coming up near the barn too.  The bees are happy and so am I.

My grandmother always used to say if you held a buttercup just under your chin, and your chin turned yellow (it always did) it meant you were sweet as butter.

I did the buttercup under the chin thing when I was a kid!!! They are a pretty little flower and the bees just love them...great pics.
BTW thanx for the tip about WV on my comments...I forgot to change the settings...should be ok now!!!

I love shots of bees, I have not been able to capture any yet. Our Azaleas are full of buds and are bursting open. I hope this will beezz a bumper crop this year.

I don't even have a daffodil coming up yet. What the heck?

Oh, and if and when my sister and her beloved ever decide to come and talk to us about renting the pasture again, we should have cattle by the end of May.

So ya think we are done with old man winter? I sure hope so as I am seriously thinking I will put some veggie plants in the ground this next week!

Clint said...

We boys would take buttercups and smear them on each other for aggravation. Made a heckuva mess.

Such a beautiful yellow...one to spring!

Trisha said...

So pretty! Its warming up...but not enough to find these yet. You give me hope!!

Tricia said...

I don't think my comment went thru... but I said that I forgot to post for FFF & I had a pic picked out & everything... dog-gone-it!

Your FFF pics are very bright & sunny & happy... love that spring is finally showing itself!!! =)

Kathy said...

Thanks for your visits and nice comments. If you're near Cedar Creek Reservoir, I can't imagine why lilacs wouldn't grow there. We're only about a hundred miles southeast and they do quite well here. Our bluebonnets actually started opening up a couple days ago even though they are still sparse and it is way early for them. The Nacogdoches azalea gardens will be in full glory in another week probably! This part of Texas is truly wonderful in the spring, don't you agree? It's probably still pretty cold in Wisconsin!

I love bees..and buttercups, especially the wild ones...they were magic, as was everything when I was a child! None here yet, not even a bee..still too cold! ;D

Sharon said...

We have bees! They are busy with the peach blossoms, I just don't have a good enough camera to "catch" them! Good shots there, Girl!

Woody said...

Nice to see buttercups, I can't remember the last time I saw one. They are such a 'happy' shade of yellow!

Evelyn S. said...

Buttercups! What wonderful memories of childhood in the country and great harbingers of spring!

I love this magnificent photos of this excellent example of the Golden Button where I live, which grow wild in the field are very small. Have a great weekend!

I heard that yellow is the color that nature's animals and insects are most attracted to. Reminds me of Easter and little chicks.

Beautiful pics-Happy Spring:@)

bon bon said...

my great-gramma had buttercups, so i always think of her when i see them. :o)

Rose said...

There were buttercups down home, can't remember seeing them here but maybe I wasn't paying attention and missed them. Your photos are so clear and sharp...love that about them.

Millie said...

Those flowers look just yummy! I love their bright cheerful yellow.

Marvin said...

Bold and beautiful yellow! We have a while yet to wait before seeing a buttercup.

(Sorry to be a nit picker, but that's not bee in your buttercup. It's a hover fly, something in family Syrphidae.)

barbara l. hale said...

Oh, boy! Love that yellow..sure sign of spring.

Jennifer said...

Dont think I've seen the bees out here yet... pretty buttercups.
