FLORA -- The scablands may look brown from a distance at the end of February, but the buttercups that bloom with the first winter hint of sunshine and warmer temps shout "Spring" to walkers who get out and explore.

Delightful buttercup images from the past week are all over social media, including this one by Jim Cummins on the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Facebook page.
