Re: Colt's-foot

Thanks beefan. For me it was particularly interesting because last year I took a photo of Colt's-foot leaves (http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/283892) and didn't know what they were. I was really surprised when someone mentioned that I'd missed their flowers which had been earlier in the year. Now I've seen both!
