Last Friday Ontario Wanderer posted a photo of skunk cabbage - his first spring wildflower. Well, if he's got one, I want one. He's in, you know, Ontario. I'm in New York. I feel entitled. So, Bill and I set out toward where they grow. It may be a fifteen minute walk if you're just trying to get there. But we dawdled.
When we got to where I know they grow, we saw just snow. Poking around a bit turns up some buds. I wouldn't call them flowers yet. But you've got to give them credit for trying.
On the homefront, brave little snowdrops are poking up through the snow.
