A fine smell is in the air, skunk cabbage. Some complain about the smell, not me.
It provides the first intense color outside after 5 months of winter hues.
Due to it’s abundance, although short-lived, some consider it a weed. However, bears seam to eat the roots after hibernation for cleansing. It is supposed to contain a lot of calcium oxalate, which causes a prickly sensation, to say the least.
