The Woods are Green Again

The amazing skunk cabbage is getting huge and is on its way to covering the entire floor of the wetlands in my woods. I love it. It's almost time for me to jump in bed to watch TV. Have a great evening. xo

It's so pretty and lush. I believe there's a plant that looks very much like it sold in nurseries out here.

I have to agree with Karen re: the looks (pretty and lush) of the plant. Why is it called skunk cabbage? Does it smell bad? And is it more of a bog plant?

Karen...I think it looks like some hostas I've seen.

Maggie...Yes, it's a bog plant that has an odor when you pick the leaves. The deer won't even eat it. It has no enemies...maybe because of the smell. It has no odor as long as it's undisturbed.
