365/65: 25 April 2010: I love this flower

I’m pretty sure it a Marsh Marigold, and its cheerful yellow flowers  brighten damp, and often, quite dull places all over Britain in late spring. Even the leaves are attractively green and glossy. This specimen was next to one of the ponds in Allerby Community Gardens which is right next door to us. The pond itself has a nice selection of tadpoles as well so something is thriving. I’m afraid the newts in our garden pond appear to have succumbed to the cold weather so I’m hoping there are a few in these ponds that fancy a new home.
