The glorious Mountain Bluebird returned to our mountain home a few weeks ago, and the humble yellow Buttercup popped up soon therafter. Both are the looked-for signs of spring’s arrival.

And let me tell you, spring is here in earnest!!! The hillsides have practically exploded with Buttercups! Bluebirds are happily flitting everywhere, along with Red-Breasted Robins and Chickadees. Needless to say, all are quite twitterpated!
