That was the Cowsills.
My grandmother used to pick the leaves of cowslips on the sides of streams and in wet ditches when My Grandpa, my Dad, & I were hitting the trout streams. She'd take them home and boil them up as greens. I've never picked the buds, but as the plant flowers throughout spring and summer, I'd think you could find the buds all through the growing season. I think fiddleheads should be about ready to be harvested though.
