Skunk Cabbage

I live in a wooded area and on my morning walks I have come across deer, herons, mallard ducks, and owls. As Ebony and I were walking this morning, I got this piercing smell. Quickly I called my dog to heel as I did NOT want her to meet the skunk.

As we came around the corner, I saw through the woods in a boggy area a multitude of skunk.......cabbage!

How can something so lovely smell soooooo badly?





At closer range the smell was awful! But look how pretty!
