Day 112 > Marsh Marigold

The rain has finally gone and the sun has returned and with it's warmth, the wildflowers have begun to bloom... just in time for Earth Day! This plant, commonly known as "Cowslip" or Marsh Marigold (though it is not actually a member of the Marigold family) blooms profusely along the soggy edges of creeks and seasonal wet spots bringing a splash of brightness to the drab springtime forest.
