Coltsfoot Wins Again

Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara)

Wildflowers bloom about one month later on the lake, at 1,650 ft. above sea level, than in the lowlands like Troy.  I spotted this Coltsfoot while walking around the lake on Saturday.  It's usually the first wildflower to appear in the spring.  Its name refers to its basal-shaped leaf's resemblance to a colt's foot.
