Coltsfoot

Coltsfoot (latin: Tussilago farfara) is the first spring flower to appear in Norway. My boys picked some yesterday and we put them in small glasses with water(shot glasses, that is πŸ˜‰ ) and now we have four glasses with coltsfoot in the kitchen window. Some are close to drowning, but who cares. The joy of finding these and picking them is is much more important. πŸ™‚ Β By the way, although we’ve had some snow lately, spring is still quite early. We didn’t find these until late April last year.
