Wordless Wednesday-Get Out Your Butter Churn

I ran across this field of buttercups on Fort Belvoir while headed to an appointment.  They reminded me of when we used to pick them as children and it was a make you smile moment.

Good  for YOU.

After seeing your photo it brought back memories of holding them under each other's chins but I can't for the life of me remember why.  Hmmm, maybe I'm imagining things.

Cindy,

Oh your photo brings back fond memories! We use to hold them under our chins and make a wish! You aren't imagining things Jenny!

I didn't realize that buttercups have a fragrance. They don't grow in CA Bay Area, where I'm from. And I've never noticed them in CO...where I am now. What we get are major amounts of mustard. And mustard does smell. Some like it and some don't. It's unusual.

Buttercups fill our woods in the spring in Pennsylvania.  love them there something about them that make you smile.  When I was a kid we would pick them put them under someones chin..if it reflect yellow ( and it usually did )  that meant they likes butter.   Thanks for the nice memories

A pretty picture and I haven't seen butter cups gowning wild forever, nice to know they still exist.

Cindy,

Makes me want to hold one under my chin. Jenny is NOT imaging this - it was a highly scientific way to see if someone liked butter. If there was a yellow reflection under your chin, you liked butter...

Ginger-I stopped, parked my car and picked a buttercup.  It brought back so many fun memories.

Terry-glad to bring a smile to your face.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 9 years ago

Susan-you are so right.  Must be the yellow color.

Lisa-thanks for stopping by and enjoying the flowers.

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 9 years ago

Jenny-know you aren't imagining things.  It was to figure out whether we liked butter or not.  Who came up with that silly game?

Dorrie-none of us have gone so far over the edge that we don't remember the little buttercup game.

Marianne-I'm don't think they do, or at least nothing distinguisable.  One of my favorite photos in my house is a wildflower scene from CO.

June-when I ran across this patch of buttercups it was the first time I had seen them in awhile.  I just wanted to lie down in the middle of them and stare at the blue sky.

Jim-glad you were able to take a little trip down memory lane.

Mary-I am too!

Posted by Cindy Jones, Pentagon, Fort Belvoir & Quantico Real Estate News (Integrity Real Estate Group) over 9 years ago

Irene-there must be a generation of "girls" who remember holding buttercups under our chin. 

Judy-glad you enjoyed the photo.  Enjoy your week and weekend.

Hi Cindy:

This photo brough back memories for me.

I used to pick them also...

We rarely see sites like that anymore around here in NJ.

A field like that, is now a parking lot.
