Some bright yellow globe flowers (trollius) look even brighter in a shady spot next to a river. These cheerful Spring flowers with their large fleshy leaves need a damp spot to thrive.

Edit 09.04.14: Just realised that these flowers arent’ globe flowers but are actually Marsh Marigolds. I should have noticed the difference in the leaves between the two. Thanks to Mike at Wilden Marsh.

    1. Many thanks, Adrian! Yes, the contrast really helps show off the colour of the flowers. I tried to grow these many years ago and hadn’t realised they needed damp ground. It’s possibly why they look so good right now with all the damp claggy soil around.


    1. Yes, that’s true – although I haven’t ‘noticed‘ many, doesn’t mean there aren’t lots around! Actually our little yellow celandines have been flowering abundantly with all the moisture – I’ve never seen so many!
