It was 80 degrees one day and snowing the next, but I think Spring is actually coming! Here are some of my first Spring flowers. Of course, the Buttercups have been blooming for a while now. I have some near the edge of the woods that usually start coming up by the end of January, but they bloomed the last week of February this year. Do you ever notice how often you see Buttercups (daffodils) in odd locations? You know someone planted them for a reason. Usually it's a sure way to spot where a house 'used' to be located. If you ever drive thru Land Between the Lakes, it's easy to spot where houses used to be before the government came in and moved people out of their homes. Just look for the flowers. It's a little sad, but also a little bit of history. Someone lived there and loved the land long enough to plant flowers that reach out to our generation today.
