Horses and Buttercups

You have to "see" these "Buttercups"
in order to really appreciate their beauty.

Add a horse to the picture and well, it was over the top gorgeous.
Except that the horse would not stand where I wanted him to,
which was right in the middle of that field.
 
After seeing these on Nancy's Blog, A Rural Journal
and spending a little time on google, I feel certain this is
Wild Mustard, they look like Buttercups!!

  1. To admit I was right and you were wrong... priceless!

    And I change my header frequently just to vex you. It's true.

    Love these shots -- and that horse's wavy hair. Beautiful!

  2. i was going to say the las time I seen buttercups and I live in the country is like 8 years ago. I do see the mustard flowers in fields.

    Do you call mustard flowers butter cups. Buttercups to me are really distinct beautiful wee pretty flower where the mustard flower here is sort of all cluttered together.
    oh the horse is picture perfect.

  6. My parents fields are covered with buttercups right now. The buttercups are poisonous to the alpacas, but they don't eat them. I love when they lay down in them I can't resist taking pictures. I wonder if they'd be allergic to wild mustard...hum. You should have seen me this morning luring the alpacas into the sprinklers to get pictures. They just don't stand where you want them to sometimes.

  7. A lovely field whatever the type of flower! :-) We have little buttercups along the edges of the road, and in the grass.

    A beautiful horse, even though he didn't cooperate. :-)

  20. Just lovely pictures of the Buttercups and horse. I can just imagine myself riding away on that horse through the field of buttercups with the wind blowing through my hair. Of course, I would be young in this one. Thanks for being an awesome blog friend; you brighten my day.
    Blessings and hugs!

  21. Well, you know: you can lead a horse to buttercups... (or whatever!), but you can't make him stand where you want!
