The Fig Buttercup and Their Revolution

The fig buttercup grows within a rotted tree stump.
A rebirth after the harsh winter.

Spring has not let me down. It came back to visit me once again.
My life will now be lived in the warmth of yellow. Happiness is golden and it grows from the earth.

Melissa, I can’t begin to tell you how beautiful this is, and how much it means to me. It was indeed a harsh winter, one of the harshest. There were times I wasn’t sure I would make it through until spring. Yet, as you so aptly put it, spring has not let me down. “My life will now be lived in the warmth of yellow.” I feel like hanging a sign on my wall with this life slogan. Thank you.

Lovely, because it shows the habitat. We have those here too – I know them as lesser celandine.

I love the contrast of colors between the intensely yellow buttercup and and the dark brownish tree stump. Spring is something miraculous!

Hi Melissa, yes even in the coldest of winters our hearts are warmed by the thoughts of Spring, the season that gives hope😀, and also the colour yellow speaks of the freshness and change in the air.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
