Stooping for Buttercups

“He likes the poor things of the world the best;
I would not, therefore, if I could be rich.
It pleases him I stoop for buttercups.”

  1. Nancy, I “stoop for buttercups” too. They are blooming here too. They are, in this rainy year, a brighter patch of yellow than the sun… so resilient and cheerful in the wind and frequent showers that we have been experiencing.

    I like your photo very much!

  2. Beautiful in its simplicity.

    Reading back through the last few posts, I wasn’t aware there were forest fires in Nova Scotia. I hope they are under control by now. Reading the news and seeing all the pictures of devastation, particularly the floods, I cringe at even complaining about the little bit of water I got in my basement two weeks ago.

  3. Buttercups and all flowering things are worthy of our stooped admiration for they give a small yet sincere joy each and every single time. Thanks for this, Nancy. Very lovely.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
