There was test that all Appalachian kids had to pass. In the Spring when the Buttercups were in bloom we had to pass a trial by nature in order to find the answer to one of life’s most important questions. “Do you like butter?” If the buttercup casts a yellow glow onto your chin then all who were gathered could see that the answer was yes. Amazingly, everyone passed! We all liked butter. Not margarine ( which is now referred to as “plant butter”.) It had to be “actual butter from the utter”.
Those were the days when magic was real. A buckeye in your pocket was a sure way to have good luck and a Granddaddy long legs ( also known as a harvestmen) could certainly point you in the direction of lost cattle.
Every Spring my lawn is blessed with a carpet of Buttercups. The bright yellow polka dots always make me feel like a kid again. And while the buttercup’s powers of divination are based on childhood games and excuses to giggle they do still have the magical ability to make me smile.
