Coltsfoot

I have been walking in this area for twenty years, and I have never seen these flowers before.

I am pretty sure they are coltsfoot. How could I have missed their cheery yellow faces?

They are so beautiful, they indicate Spring! In German, its name is Huflattich!

I think you are right about these being coltsfoot, but whatever the name, they sure are bright and sunny looking.

Let's see if this works. Really terrible signal here in the cottage. So if this message will be forwarded it's a samll miracle. Absolutely Coltsfoot is what those little sprin sund are. They are so lovely. Now you go and check for blue woodanenemies next. I'll post a picture or two at my return to town tomorrow night. They usually come straight afterwards in places with dappled light conditions.

PS. We don't have snow anymore at all. Apart from some extremely shady ditches in the forest.

Still cotlsfoot appear on sunny slopes and meadows as soon as the snow has gone away from those particular areas.

Yes, Coltsfoot it is! They've been here a few weeks now.

I do love Coltsfoot. It was the first wildflower to push up through the cold, cold ground when I was little.
Great shots.

Lovely Coltsfoot! I have recently seen them in Oslo also, they really light up in a rainy day!

Happy Easter!
