Chronicle-News reader and photographer Debie Foster managed to catch the light of a recent sunset at just the perfect time in her garden south of Trinidad. “It reminds me of Easter,” Foster said. The bright blooming buttercups certainly make for a wonderful Palm Sunday disiplay. Thank you, Debie, for sharing.
