Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara)
When I went up the mountain to check the springs I saw coltsfoot, the first flowers of spring on Sugar Mountain.
I’ve never seen these at lower altitudes. They seem to be a dizen of the highlands. We didn’t use to have dandelions here until I brought up seeds from lower down and spread them in our fields.
Later the coltsfoot will more to be a very different looking plant that is easily confused with the young burdock.

Daily Spark: I will never give up hope. I am an optimist by definition. The glass is half empty because I drank the other half.
