Days like this there’s no better place to wake up and have to go to work. Lori and I always enjoy our walk into town, whether it’s saying hello to the cows or pigs, noticing the changes in the neighborhood, or even stopping and smelling the roses. It is Rose Ave after all. Now that the sun is finally out it actually seems like spring is here, which means the buttercups are in bloom. There is a fine art to having the perfect field of buttercups. You can’t mow the grass too short because then of course you end up mowing the buttercups. If you just let the grass grow, then it grows taller than the butter cups and they disappear. So ideally, your last mowing should be a few weeks before they start blooming, then you end up with a beautiful field of tiny yellow flowers as these folks did.
