Buttercup, buttercup

Wye is a small town about 30 minutes outside of Little Rock. In Wye, there's a small Methodist Church that plants a hillside with daffodil bulbs. Every spring the entire hillside turns yellow with buttercups and they host their annual Wye Mountain daffodil festival. It's kind of a local tradition for parents to take their kids to the festival and to snap some pretty spring phtos.

Yesterday evening we did just that with Liv. Tony had to work late so Denise went with me. The drive was beautiful, leaving the city behind and winding deeper into the hills. The weather was perfect - 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. We got there just before sunset.





Happy Spring!!

I love that photo of her looking down, so lovely. :)

Do you call daffodils buttercups? I've never heard them called that! But it makes sense somehow.

Did you know I live in Wye? Well really in a hamlet just up the hill but Wye is our real village. We have daffs everywhere too, though the 70 degree weather is a long way off I'm afraid. Here's a really funny panorama of the main road. Why there's a panorama of the main rod in Wye I don't know.

Aw, how beautiful!! Love those daffodils! That is the Welsh national flower, so my girls are always covered in them in the spring, thanks to their daddy.
