Swamp Treasures

Yesterday I visited the Marsh-Marigolds (Caltha palustris). They belong to the radiant family of Buttercups. A goldfinch crossed my path moments after I left the flowers, and by comparison, the bird seemed almost drab. 
I feasted on a plate of fiddleheads today, fresh from Goulais Bay. Mmmm … Thanks, Jack!
