Marsh Marigold (Calthra palustris)

This was the only one blooming on my hike yesterday. I always forget that all parts of this plant are quite poisonous to humans. Touching it can cause skin irritation. The woods near my home will soon be full of these, but it sure was nice to see this one after this long winter. >
