When I was growing up, when the flowers first started blooming we would go outside and frolic in them. Most years, that involved holding a buttercup (some people use a dandelion) up to our chins to see the yellow reflection on our chins. The petals are highly reflective, so it makes this beautiful yellow-orange glow. The degree to which it glows is supposed to mean various things, depending on which version of the folk story you grew up hearing -- but mostly, if you like butter. 

Kinda silly. I don't need a flower to tell you that I like butter.

But the glow looks pretty and always reminds me of spring.

Happy Spring everyone! :D
