Becky’s Bright Squares : April 16, 2021

This humble dandelion is my offering for Becky B’s April Bright Squares Challenge.

Hail, man-o’-war’s men, safeguards of your nation,
Here is an end, at last, of all privation;
You’ve got your pay–spare all you can afford
To welcome Little Buttercup on board

I’m called Little Buttercup, dear Little Buttercup,
Though I could never tell why.
But still I’m called Buttercup, Poor Little Buttercup,
Sweet Little Buttercup, I!

I’ve snuff and tobaccy, and excellent jacky,
I’ve scissors, and watches, and knives;
I’ve ribbons and laces to set off the faces
Of pretty young sweethearts and wives

I’ve treacle and toffee, I’ve tea and I’ve coffee,
Soft tommy and succulent chops;
I’ve chickens and conies, and pretty polonies,
And excellent peppermint drops.

Then buy of your buttercup, Dear Little Buttercup,
Sailors should never be shy;
So buy of your Buttercup, Poor Little Buttercup,
Come, of your Buttercup buy. — H.M.S. Pinafore, Gilbert & Sullivan

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #143 – Colorful April

The tulips have been riotous this Spring!
As the daffodils die back, the silver dollars run rampant.
The azaleas are gearing up for a major explosion.

The croci are always the first to show themselves at the end of Winter. I find them a well sight every late Winter, early Spring day.

CMMC – April Color – Light or Neon Green

Here is my weigh-in on Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – April Color – Light or Neon Green

I’m not exactly sure what the name of this green may be, but I couldn’t resist the furry leaves.
This parsley look quite pale to me.
I don’t know what this is, but it reminds me of sea anemones
