Yellow Mess
Originally uploaded by urtica

In a midst of green and brown, a bright yellow flower caught my eye...and turned out to be coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara). When you're out in the woods looking for signs of spring, this isn't really what you're hoping for. Especially when you've been passing by the same spot on the trail for three years and have never seen a leaf nor a fluffy seed head belonging to this forest invader.

I yanked it out - hope there aren't more where this came from

Urtica is invasive and it can cause a dangerous alergy by touching.
