Please keep the reports coming.

Caltha palustris is one of my favourite European flowers. I do not know the English name so maybe some smart person on the list can help me out. The German is Sumpf-Dotterblume. Their gold colour is so hard that the blooms seem to be metalic.

I won't pretend to be a smart person, I just happen to have handy a copy of the Concise Brit ish Flora in Colour - Caltha palustris is Marsh Marigold, Kingcup or Mollyblobs - I've never heard the 3rd common name, which sounds lovely. As a child, we always called them either of the first two names.
