Last Saturday I put my barn boots on and walked across the road to the beaver bog to photograph the marsh marigolds (or cowslips) — the yellow you see in the photo above. This is not the part of the bog directly in front of my house, but a section to the east. The cowslips are spreading every year. In Europe, cowslip is a different flower. These flowers are native and are a member of the buttercup family.
