The joy of the jacks

In the deep, mottled shade of our large linden tree shade grow our two jack-in-the-pulpit plants (Arisaema triphyllum). I await their appearance eagerly each spring and I’m always Jack in the pulpit 10021happy to see them reappear. We have even more of an overabundance of rabbits this year than usual, and I’m relieved that they are not attracted to nibble on these.

    Is this up at the cabin, Gary…or at home? Nice image. :)

      This is here in Omaha. Things are not nearly as far into spring blooming up north, a difference of 485 miles. I’m eager to see how things will have progressed when we go back up in a couple of weeks.

        Yes, that many miles north and south can make a significant difference in the progress of the seasons, can’t they? I’ll look forward to seeing how things are at the cabin, as well. :)

    I remember those beautiful flowers. Just loved them.

  4. We also have some growing in the yard…under our Japanese Maple. I have never crawled under there…poison ivy is one good reason…but always enjoy finding them in the wild.

  5. Did you hear a sermon from that pulpit? If so, what was the gist?
