Tussilago farfara

Coltsfoot - Often found in colonies. They resemble small dandelions. It has been used as a food product in confectionery in the past. Also Coltsfoot tea was reputed to have caused liver disease so was consequently banned for the use of tea. Coltsfoot rock however can still be bought at some confectioners. I came across these flowers at Annagh Lake area in Co. Leitrim.
