My gold: marsh marigold

Peter laughed happily. "They are my gold!" cried he. "See how they shine! And they are full of golden meaning, for now I know that truly Mistress Spring is here to stay. I hoped I would find the very first one, and I guess I have." Once more Peter Rabbit kicked up his heels for pure joy.
--Thornton B. Burgess, The Burgess Flower Book for Children (1923)

Lovely... I'm guessing ours will be up soon too. Thanks for reminding me to go look. Happy Spring (gold)! :)

I love those! Em does too--she likes to pick a bunch of them, cut off the stems and float the flower heads in a bowl of water.
