ABC Wednesday--S

Mrs. Nesbitt is the hostess
of ABC Wednesday.
You can visit her here to
find all the participants.
Showy Sedge adorns the meadows at Paradise and Sunrise.

Sword Fern is common in the forests.

We spotted a couple of areas of Skunk Cabbage this past weekend as we camped at Ohanapecosh. Skunk Cabbage blooms in the spring in boggy places in the lower elelvations. The bloom is protected by a yellow bract. The leaves eventually grow to about four feet long. You need little imagination to guess the reason for its name.

July--This must have been late July, as we shoveled snow from the bridge near Shadow Lake last July 4th..

Great S pictures. I love the Shadow ones. Please tell me the Skunk plant doesn't stink like a skunk...! A smelly plant as in "ewwww" and not "aaaah"?
Thanks for visiting mine.
