Marsh Marigold

Did another bit of clearing of the Lower Pond today. It was a biting cold day but it needed doing badly. Delighted to see that Caltha palustris (Marsh Marigold) is beginning to open. This is in full shade all winter. And it's only today that it got about 30 minutes of sunshine. So it'll be better as the season moves on. I have another one in the Greenhouse Pond that gets full sun all year and it's still way behind.

A little beauty there Jacinta.

Very nice, maybe it prefers the bit of shade?

At first glancei thought buttercups, but no they are like little roses,

A real cheery display there, Jacinta, and the flower shape is lovely.

Love them, we have some white ones in the new pool.

Thanks, everyone.

Terri, I didn't realise they came in white. Are they flowering at the moment?

TerriShoos TerriShoos 21 March 2017 12:35:56

Yep, just put up a picture. They're baby plants yet but if they multiply I'll give you a slip.
