The remains of last night’s snow seemed to add color to the landscape.

Nature’s floral arrangements

While following an elusive trail of a new flower today I came upon two of Mother Nature’s settings I just couldn’t pass up. I didn’t need any more Shooting Star pictures, but…

and my quota on Buttercup photos is all filled up, however…

Sure wish I could do arrangements that well!

Before a lot of other species of wildflowers begin their short life cycles, I am still enjoying the Buttercups which are now in their mid-season glory and I have decided to post photos of them over the next few days including a couple that I hope will display a little of their character that I don’t think is always noticed. Please bear with me!

On a day that featured bright warm sun at times and cold, wind-driven snow at others, it was great being outside. My accomplishments were minor: I caught a Brown trout and a Rainbow and released both, hiked about 7 miles in total and in between the snow storms snapped two photos that I really like. Taking the risk of boring everyone with more photos of these early wildflowers, here they are:
