Coltsfoot

Coltsfoot is a member of the sunflower family and at this time of year when the sun shines as it has recently, it seems obvious as the flowers all stand up and look towards the sun. On dull days the little flowers close up and you can see the hairy stems.
Another feature of the Coltsfoot is that the flowers come first and as they go over then the leaves appear.
