spring wandering Written by vsperry Something peeps out of last year’s leaves looking vaguely like a chick. Upon further sensorial inspection it is determined to be the beginning of this year’s skunk cabbage. chick-like peeping through the dead leaves 0.000000 0.000000 Share:Share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to email (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading... 9 thoughts on “spring wandering” At first I though it was a borlotti bean because of the colors 🙂 hugs Fozziemum x Reply Okay, my ignorance is showing again. What the &%** is a borlotti bean? Reply Hahahaha they are delicious beans and the colors are exactly the same as the pic you put up..usually used for minestrone soups etc 🙂 they are such pretty beans in pretty pods 🙂 not ignorant at all…they are a very Italian veggie :0 Reply I learned something today! Thanks! 🙂 Reply 🙂 Hehe I always try and learn something new each day…wards off old age 😉 An excellent reason to keep learning. Reply Skunk cabbage is one of my favorite signs of spring! I like the variegated blossom of your East Coast variety. The ones in our wetland, and neighboring wet areas are bright yellow. Imagine the two varieties next to each other… but that’s all we can do. Can’t introduce invasive species in either place. Right? 🙂 Reply nooooooo…please no more invasives, we have enough as it is…I thought I’d try to eradicate some of the honeysuckle and multiflora rose that is in my woods…wish me luck. Reply I wish you luck on both accounts! Last spring I went to work eradicating invasive blackberry from our property. What an amazing transformation… we now have a nature habitat area and are working to plant more native plants. The time spent is worth the effort… you will smile when you are “done.” Reply I'd love to hear your thoughts! Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
