March 12: Skunk cabbage

Skunk cabbages are very interesting plants that generate enough internal heat that they can melt snow in the spring. There's been no snow-melting necessary this spring, so today on our walk we were able to observe the fresh shoots of skunk cabbages raising their mottled heads in the cedar swamp.
Skunk cabbages rise.
Walking past we two
generate our own spring heat.
