Coltsfoot in bloom
Between a rock and a hard place
Finding nourishment while being rooted in rocks,
yearning for the sun;
Determination is its key to survival
Found yesterday in Quispamsis these Coltsfooot are my first photos of wildflowers in 2011. My daughter had found them while out for a walk. I had suggested that she look in places that attracted a srong stream of sunlight and she found these in a rocky bed of rocks alongside a roadside. Last year I had found this wildflower blooming in my garden on April 12th. , 2011. Maybe this year? I don't think so although I have already looked and have found no sign of their growth. Today I will search for their blossoms in an old favourite spot of mine for finding them along a railroad track which is another harsh environment that they seem to thrive in.
Coltsfoot, always welcome color in spring. Did you know that you can make a tea from the leaves for sore throats? I've never done it, but, from what I've read it sounds legit.
They do look bright and cheery among the rocks.
A lovely spot of color in the rocks :-)
These are very beautiful pictures it just brightens my day!!!
Warms me up just looking at them. thanks Ann.
Coltsfoot! What a promising sighting! Spring is sure to be found soon! Look forward to my first sighting! Snow predicted for us, tomorrow! Mother nature's April fool's joke.
