Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara)
Today (Sunday) started out grey and dreary, but then the sun came out this afternoon. YAY!
The very first wildflower to bloom in my area is coltsfoot. The blossoms look a lot like dandelions but notice that their centres are not at all like dandelions and that this plant blooms before the leaves spout.
And the first tree to leaf out are the willows.
