About Today’s Photo:
I was down in New Haven yesterday and came across a bloom of coltsfoot on the edge of a gravel parking lot. This hardy and early blooming flower likes disturbed soils and you’ll often find it along our dirt road. I haven’t seen it up in our neck of the woods yet, but I’m sure it’ll be blooming soon!
