Yellow Flowers and Dipper Families

There are lots of these yellow daisies in Colinton and Craiglockart Dells (Water of Leith) just now. 
Here's a neat hideaway for a young dipper! Click on the photo to get a better view! I saw two families of dippers on the river today.
Several buttercup meadows too!

We have buttercups blooming now, here. I am not sure what those yellow daisy are, but I think I have seen them in commercial bouquets.

Incredible that they can stay there near the water like that. Love the buttercup meadow. Makes me feel at peace to look at it.

Buttercups are so pretty - but so invasive in lawn and garden. And - if I remember right - it was buttercups that kept getting Tootle the Train Engine in trouble!!!

Oh, I do so wish there were dippers in the Southeast US. I love to watch footage of them in action.

How sweet Spring is! Birds and water are always fascinating to watch, my bluebirds are always waiting for the garden sprinkler.

I wish I could roll and roll and roll in that yellow-dotted green carpet. And smell the air. And watch the dippers. (sigh)

I love your buttercups. I find them difficult to photograph and fun to see in real life.
