Alpine marsh

One of my favorite sights in spring is the "marsh marigold" Caltha leptosepala.
Quick to bloom when the snow melts and the meadows are marshy.
It will soon be gone.

I love the early wildflowers! Things are really starting to bloom here now - it's a joy to walk in the forest.

Those are so pretty. What an unusual habitat for such a fragile looking flower.

They are so beautiful and nature is just a joy.

They are lovely little flowers and look as though they live in a wild kind of setting!
Great shots.

Lovely wildflower - looks very much the same as one of the flowers blooming in Norway during spring, except from the leaves. Lovely shots!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love those too. My husband calls them meadow floam? Don't know where he got that from.
