My view while down in the wetlands.
This is what it looks like today...
and that's my hubby getting close enough to it to see if it really does smell awful,
and it doesn't,
unless it gets crushed.
It looks like a huge head of lettuce,
good enough to eat,
but I guess that animals
find it really digusting.
Here's another photo of the skunk cabbage,
from early spring,
just as it was starting to grow out of the wetlands
at our cottage.
As you can see,
we have tons it...
none of the plants are close to the cottage,
but the valley and the wetlands
are full of it.
