Swamp Lanterns ~ A Sign Of Spring (#732)

I am always excited to find native plants when out in the forest.  Yesterday, here in Oregon I found my first one.

An early morning walk around Lake Marie here at Umqua led to my discovery of the beautiful yellow Swamp Lanterns signaling the return of Spring.

What’s in a name?  Swamp Lantern sounds (to me) mystical, ethereal.  While their common name, Skunk Cabbage……meh.  You decide ~

Swamp Lantern, also called skunk cabbage

    I prefer swamp lantern. They are beautiful. Spring must come earlier there than it does in PA. Nothing ready to bloom here yet. As a matter of fact it is snowing right now! UGH
