I hear an infusion of coltsfoot is good for coughs and colds (hence the name). I've never tried it. Have you?
no I've never tried it!
Such a bright dot in a sea of brown. So cheering.
They look a lot like the dandelions my ancestors accidentally imported with their seeds from Europe. I guess coltsfoot didn't take to our country!
And very cheery face they are showing to the world...
I love the English name for this.
They are so sweet.
Such a bright, cheerful flower! I just saw yarrow today for the first time. I'm told it isn't native to north America but came from Europe and Britain. A bouquet of yarrow and coltsfoot would be lovely!
Spring is definitely coming!
What a lovly sight, bright in the brown.
The bright yellow is cheery. It is nice to see some colors popping up after a drabby winter. Have a great weekend!
First I have seen this year Juliet - love it. I am watching my marsh marigolds daily - they are in bud.
Lovely shot of the flowers.
very pretty little flowers
It looks like some kind of aster..Very pretty little flower.. Thank you for adding this post to Nature Notes..I enjoy seeing what is going on in your area...Michelle
Is that what's that called?!? I didn't know...looks like cammomile (I think I spelled that wrong) but with yellow rather than white petals.
Apparently the Romans called coltsfoot 'tussilago' meaning cough plant and this is still a part of its botanical name.
Such a cheerful little plant. Isn't it wonderful to see color again?
