These daffodils that began opening yesterday, and I photographed today, were not the first flowers to blossom at our farm.

Earlier this week I spotted these coltsfoot blossoms.

Although coltsfoot is usually thought of as a weed, this wild plant is edible and offers medicinal properties. Check out this link http://www.ediblewildfood.com/coltsfoot.aspx to learn more about it.

Lastly I will leave you with a photo of these beautiful pansies that my husband rescued for me πŸ™‚ from work today.

It would have been tragic to let these beauties die when they can instead make somebody smile.

Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day.

    1. Rory, thank you so much for this gift. I usually don’t accept award nomination because they can be time consuming and I should instead be putting time into drafts I have started, but since this is a gift instead of a nomination I humbly accept.

      1. Absolute pleasure Ruth, l know what you mean .. l changed the way l handle them because of the time factors as well as other things that slightly irked me about them.

        This way, it’s more of a ‘recognition’ thing and as discussed, a gifted compliment πŸ™‚

  1. It’s lovely to see the start of new buds and flowers! Those pansies are really pretty too πŸ™‚
    And you’ve educated me in this post as I don’t think I’d even heard of coltsfoot before!
    Hope you’re having a lovely Easter weekend xx

  2. The pansies are so bright and beautiful – a homeowner on the next block always has the yellow and purple combo and if it ever stop raining I’m going to take a picture of them. Your daffodils look cheery as well. Happy Easter Ruth – put those daffs in a vase on your holiday table.

    1. The pansies certainly brighten things up. I love daffodils – I always think Yellow is a happy color – it makes me smile – so having them blossom when everything else is gray or brown is lovely.
      Happy Easter to you as well Linda. πŸ™‚

  3. We have coltsfoot on the mountain at the cabin. Interesting link , I like that soaking the blooms in honey could help a cough. I’ll have to remember to try it
