Marsh Marigold

Marsh Marigolds grow along prairie streams, on floodplains where they are often accompanied by skunk cabbage, at the edges of prairie potholes, and are great native plants for the edge of the home pond.

I have looked at almost all the photographs in this rich, lush and colorful blog and am heartened by the look of what a healthy prairie might be. As a wildlife rehabilitator specializing in the care of squirrels, I must also say that I am an advocate for the residents of the prairie - most particularly prairie dogs (which of course are not native to my part of the Eastern U.S.) - I think you are devoting your profession to important work. Keep on keepin' on!
