Sky Watch Friday: Cowslips In The Beaver Bog

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.

  4. How lovely! I'm always amazed that you know the names of so many flowers. I don't have a clue to many that grow around me.

    Perhaps we'll get up to Vermont in the fall as part of our Sister Weekend! Vermont is always so beautiful. By the way, Andree, I could've used a photo of a buttercup for one of my sister's poems! Haha! (My Bellavia)
