Buttercup Festival in Historic Nolensville, TN

Parking was tight.  Traffic moved very slowly.  The atmostphere was festive.  And the small town was covered in yellow.

It was the 10th annual “Buttercup Festival” in historic Nolensville, TN.

Now, I call them daffodils, jonquils, and narcissus.  I’ve heard them referred to as March flowers and Easter flowers.  But in Nolensville the prevailing  term is buttercups.

There was one booth at the festival sponsored by the Middle Tennessee Daffodil Society that claimed to have 200 varieties of daffodils.  Today’s images were taken quickly at that booth, between people coming up and admiring the vast collection of fresh flowers on display and my husband encouraging me to “move on.”

    These are buttercups??? I was thinking of something tiiny and yellow, but not narcissus. What a fun place.

    I so love when small towns celebrate the simple, good things.

    Translated from German, we call them “Easter bells”. Very pretty shots, Sue. Even you were in a hurry, the pictures still have your artful signature.

    I would love to see real spring again!
