Buttercups represent a simple yet powerful harbinger of spring. Even before the leaves return and nature still appears to sleep beneath a layer of dead vegetation, these little flowers sprout from the ground, reminding me of everything good and beautiful in the world. Just when I think hope has failed, it returns in brilliant shades of yellow and green.

I noticed the buttercups too in my neighbor's yard. I always associated Poppys as signaling the begining of spring.
