What's Up, Buttercup
Photograph - Photograph
"Buttercup" is a name that is applied to a wide variety of related flowering plants, broadly spread across the globe, but particularly common in northern temperate climates. Where I grew up, and still live, in the northern part of Virginia, these bright sunny little blossoms seem to pop up everywhere in the spring, and continue to bloom well into the summer. They are considered a weed when found in more formal landscapes, but I rather like the little pops of bright color they provide, scattered randomly across the landscape in lawns, meadows, fields, and along roadsides.
What's Up, Buttercup is a close-up look at a single little blossom, only about a half-inch across. The sun seemed to hit this one just right, highlighting its warm golden glow against a background of green.
