Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) - 04
(Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) - 04) The flowers of the coltsfoot appear long before the leaves.  The leaves (not shown here) are basal and grow upright, much like a dandelion's leaves; but the coltsfoot's leaves are sparsely toothed and more rounded and heart-shaped.  The undersides of the leaves are white and hairy, and are said to resemble a colt's foot, which led to the common name.  These coltsfoot are about 4 inches high, and according to the literature, they can grow to 18 inches in height, though we have not seen them that tall.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
