I am overflowing with work, and under the weather to boot. While I strive to keep my head above water, please enjoy these images taken by TAD in Everett, Washington, used with permission for Arboreality.
What you see here are the skunk cabbage I grew up with in the forest wetlands of Western Washington. We first saw skunk cabbage at Arboreality when we explored the local forest and springs here in Eastern Pennsylvania.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments, and for visiting Arboreality!
Also, thank you TAD for the use of your pictures, and for the much welcome glimpse of Washington.
