Featured in FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS – June 2010

Caltha palustris
This wildflower is common in swampy areas and along stream banks. Marsh marigolds emerge from shallow water or grow on small mounds holding the plant just above the water. During their dormant period the soil should not be allowed to dry at all. Marsh Marigolds are a welcome sight in early spring but seem to disappear as fast as they emerged. They transplant well but going into the spring muck to dig them up can not be described as easy but adding Marsh Marigolds to a water garden is well worth the effort

    That’s a nice shot of marsh marigolds, Vickie !
    Very unusual to get green backgrounds with these but then again, it’s been an unusual spring.. :)

  • yes, as is off the camera, they were in a ditch with ditch grass, lovely background, got some with reflections too. I used the big lens, lol, too lazy to go down the steep hill on the old ankle
