Day eight

Despite the gray sky today I made a follow-up visit to the ridge-top home of the Buttercup, and I guess now it’s official: this area’s first wildflower of 2010 is in bloom.

And the bad news: I perused my photo archives and found that while the Buttercups in that same area bloomed at about the same time last year the next wildflowers to appear were Yellow bells in late March. Go figure.
