Spring Blooms

The Marsh Marigold/Cowslips are blooming.  They are native plants that bloom early in the spring.

Marsh Marigolds  May 5 2012

They are found along streams or in marshy wet areas. They are one of the signs that winter is finally behind us.

I caught a bad cold, what is worse I have lost my voice.  I can whisper…no one can hear me..well except for Chance ..he has really good hearing.  I went to work with half a voice yesterday and came home with no voice.   Far Guy can fill in for me at the museum if need be.  He is all trained in and ready to rock and roll.  I made him part of my contract this year so that I can occasionally have a day off:)

  1. You let Far Guy pull out your nose hairs. They filter cold germs... hence you got a cold. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. All kidding aside, hope you feel better real soon, and I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day.

  2. Sorry to hear you got a cold, Connie. They seem so innocuous until we get them ourselves... I hope you're feeling better by Mother's Day. Nice marsh marigolds, your favorite color, too.

  4. Hope your cold takes a hike soon. Getting one at this time of the year just doesn't seem right:( You might not have a voice, but luckily for us readers your fingers are still working. Good idea getting Far Guy signed on!

  5. The same cold is flying around here. It heads for the throat and shuts down the voice. I don't want this one as I caught all the others during the winter. It can't help to work in the cooler of a museum. Far Guy can field all the complaints from those who like to do those things continually. Drink a lot of hot coffee or tea.

  8. I've always wanted to try growing these. I see them at the greenhouse and in magazines but I doubt they'd survive the winter.

  13. i was interested to hear that Minnesota's marsh marigolds are blooming now. Ohio and Minnesota have many of the same wild flowers but the months they bloom in are different. I think the marsh marigolds in our area bloomed in March. Now the waterleafs are blooming.

  14. The cowslips are beautiful. I don't know that I've ever seen them before. Mother Nature does such a beautiful job of landscaping! Why we ever think we could do better is beyond me. Sure hope you get your voice back and feel better! It's great that Far Guy can fill in when you need it. Smart thinking!
