The one thing I absolutely love about the arrival of spring, are the flowers. I never tire looking at flowers and they never fail to bring me joy. I have a number of "favorites", but way up on the top of my list has to be buttercups. I remember picking them each spring when I was a little girl on my way home from school. Somehow seeing a buttercup gives me assurance that spring has indeed arrived at last. How can anyone not have a smile come to their face when they see something as majestic as a simple little buttercup.
