more on coltsfoot, that spring herb
we found another patch of coltsfoot while out driving the other day. I could not resist picking and drying more to have available for ourselves and friends. Coltsfoot is excellent for respiratory ailments, it is easily harvested now, it loves to have it "feet wet" so look in swampy, yet sunny locations.
Small flowers are what you will find now, later in the season the leaves,that resemble a colt's foot:) will appear.
