Do you like butter?


One of the flowers that I remember liking best as a child was the buttercup. Bright yellow and shiny, we used to hold them under our friends' chins and say 'Do you like butter?'  If there was a patch of reflected yellow, the answer was deemed to be 'yes'!

They look so pretty against a blue and white sky. I am delighted that there are fields full of them locally, now that some of Northcliffe Park is managed as wild grassland and wildflower meadow. Delightful.

  3. I remember doing that - and also did the same with my kids. Love the first picture - it's like an album cover.

  5. Lovely field. I thoughtof you yesterday as we were driving through the country home from the grocery. We passed some beautiful wild flowers growning in the meadows and along side the road. This is a lovely photo. Thank you.
