In early spring the first of the wildflowers to bloom are the Caltha palustris. Also known as Marsh Marigolds or Cow Slips. Picture the flowers growing out of hummocks in a swampy pasture and you guessed it…slipping cows.
Far Guy saw these first. Just to prove he was not seeing things we turned around and went back to have another “look see.”
There they were amongst the brown…blooming. A REAL sign of spring for us here in Minnesota!!
The color yellow always cheers me up, and I must admit it is my favorite color for flowers…but you probably knew that already.
