Well, much excitement on our walk this morning.  We walked by a ravine 
and I had Harry hold the dog while I climbed down to look at a plant- 
Symplocarpus foetidus.  Very exciting!  There were a few in bloom, 
although most were past their prime.  The best bloom I saw was directly 
in a small stream of water.
This is the first time I've seen one in "the wild", although I've lived 
in this area all my life.  I think the stuff we called "skunk cabbage" 
as kids wasn't Symplocarpus, it had leaves more like a rhubarb.
