Farewell to Buttercup Days

Brunswick, Maine

Scenes from Aldermere Farm, Rockport, Maine.

Even as the days grow longer, June is often a damp and foggy month. Rain or shine, our state lights up its roadsides and meadows with the welcome sight of masses of buttercups. The summer solstice is today and from now on we will begin to lose precious minutes of daylight while we say farewell to the buttercups' cheerful glow as they make way for daisies, black eyed susan and finally, the rippling sea of goldenrod.

I think this rendition of Build Me Up Buttercup is rather sweet!


  1. I have never seen fields of buttercups like these. Simply comforting.

  2. Barbara, I love them! It's almost as if they are lighted from within.

  3. Freddy Victoria ~ Thank you! And thank you for stopping by!
