For nearly the past two weeks the ditches and low spots have been filled with the bright yellow blooms of the marsh marigolds. These ones I found on a road east of Old Baldy when I was heading for a hike to look at wildflowers. They always seem to brighten up the roadside in wet spots so much, sometimes following the course of a tiny stream like a yellow ribbon across the lowlands.
A little tricky to get pictures of though, 'cause they're usually growing in a few inches of water. I didn't get wet taking these, but the tripod did.
