great pics, Tom. You're 10 miles north of me, but warmer weather .

I think this is coltsfoot not hawkweed.  Coltsfoot is an early flowering plant.

thanks!, how will i be able to tell the difference?

Coltsfoot has its single flowers coming up first before the leaves.  The flowers are the first to appear in the spring.  Long before dandelion and hawkweed.   Hawkweed is much taller and the flowers are clustered at the top.
