Spring has arrived on Bowen Island

Western Skunk Cabbage or Lysichiton americanus, on Bowen Island, BC.

For me, I know that spring is really here when I see that the Skunk Cabbage is blooming in the wet places on Bowen Island.

    Robert, beautiful photo of those odiferous heralds of spring. However, I think you should know that they prefer to be called “swamp lanterns” and they inspired me to write a poem. Pauline

    Thanks Pauline. Morgan took that photo during a walk this morning. It was a much better image than the one I took a couple of days ago ( that one failed to make the blog). I love the name, ‘Swamp Lantern.’ Looking forward to hearing that poem!
