a buttercup explosion




On Saturday morning I happened to notice a field of yellow across the road from our house.
This field usually has cows pastured there for the summer but they're in the field next to it so the buttercups are growing abundantly now.  It's a buttercup explosion.

Green and yellow ~ so pretty together.



It was very windy on Saturday so it was hard to capture a picture of the blowing buttercups.
They are a bit of a blur.  :)

Then among all the yellow and green is a splash of purple.  Blueflag Irises are growing in the wet drainage ditch in the field.

The grass in the ditch is really long.  That's a fence post sticking up.

A field of buttercups.  Their pretty yellow heads blowing in the summer breeze.

First it was dandelions, then buttercups and paintbrush, phlox, clover, daisies, and Queen Anne's Lace and the list goes on.  Wildflowers showing up along the roadsides, in fields, in backyards.  Natural beauty to enjoy as the summer rolls along.  Do you notice these flowers where you live?  Or, maybe you have other wildflowers that are different to your part of the world.  They are beautiful aren't they?  Take time to stop and admire the wildflowers.

Thanks for your visits and comments and a big welcome to my new followers.  Thank you so much  for following my blog.  I love to share my photos with you and I appreciate the many friends I have made along the way.   

Have a great day!

Blessings, 
Pamela

  4. A sea of buttercups is very pretty. I have one little plant that I keep to test for butter lovers. Wonder if cows love them. Very nice wild irises, too. Hope that you are getting this beautiful weather we've been enjoying.

    It's nice to have such a great view out your window!

  6. Love your header photos of the tracks in the grass. Yes, wildflowers add such lovely colour to the green landscape.

  9. That's a lovely sequence. Buttercups look stunning in the fields around here too, surrounded by drystone walls. In the garden, though, they're a pest! Thank you so much for your recent lovely comments on my blog.

  10. I'm going to take a drive soon and get in some pictures of Lupin before they are gone. I so love your buttercup pictures, I might be strange but I'll collect wild flowers and I think wild carrot is amazing, guy is forever agonizing over it.

  13. Buttercups remind me of hot summer days as a little girl - I love them - thanks so much for sharing Pamela ( my Mother used to say that even dandelions looked beautiful with the yellow dotting the green )
    Hugs,

  15. Loved the Buttercups Pamela. I like looking for wildflowers. Years ago when my mom would come for a visit from Iowa in the springtime, we would take off for a day looking for wildflowers. I remember one time we found the best places for Trillium and May Apples. I continue my wildflower haunts now without her . . . she right there with me though, in my heart. Not far from where I live now there is a field of Wild Lupine.

  16. They have finished their blooming and now the delicate wild roses are just about ready to sow. Wild sweet peas can be found in thus same field . . . (Not able to correct the sow word to show . . . when I am commenting from my iPad, for some blog sites.). Drives me CRAZY! I see there is a 'U' where it is supposed to be an 'I' . . . that is making me even crazier . . . forgive my craziness please!

  18. Your scenery is pretty with an easy view of a field of wild flowers. Here in farm country our countryside is lush and green from all of the rain that we have had. We are surround by hay fields with baled hay waiting to picked up, and corn fields, and onions, and sugar beets, all green, and clean, neatly groomed. I'd take a buttercup or two.

  19. Just absolutely gorgeous! That pop of purple among the yellow is the perfect compliment too! Love all of these!

  20. So pretty! I love wild flowers and seeing them across the country side. Great pictures...love the cloudy skies as well. Enjoy SUMMER!! Yeah!

  21. Your scenery is just beautiful and I love the yellow! Our Back 6 is full of wildflowers right now...buttercups, daisies, clover and Queen Anne's lace. The blue Chicory is beginning to bloom. The flowers are all so pretty, but will be mowed down for hay as soon as the neighbor gets around to it.

  22. What a lovely field! One of my favourite wildflowers is the wild tiger lily, provincial flower of Saskatchewan. Sadly, the lily beetle is playing havoc with it these days.

  23. I love how buttercups can turn a whole field yellow. And I love those blue flags in amongst them!
