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 ~
