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.
