I am behind on my replies to all the comments for the last couple of posts and I will catch up shortly. I am also behind on my comments for some of your blogs and, likewise, I’ll catch up on them too.
This morning I made my annual pilgrimage to my favorite Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris) location. As always, there were around a hundred or more plants and I selected a couple to photograph.
I may show a couple of the others in the near future, but for now here is a close up of one bloom.
For this shot one really has to get down and dirty. It is fortunate that the overshoes are 20″ tall and have an over the foot strap because the muck was @10″ deep and almost sucked them right off my feet.
We went to Nasami Farm yesterday which is a garden store and nursery of the New England Wild Flower Society. I would have loved to purchase a few of these but our yard is not nearly mucky enough to support them. They love wet conditions and, although our yard can be wet at times, it is just not wet enough. I did pick up a Large-flowering White Trillium, a Dutchman’s Breeches, a Bluebells and a Trout Lily so maybe next year I can enjoy them here in the yard.
