Skunk cabbage is an unmistakable sign of spring! This year skunk cabbage appeared early, thanks to the unseasonably warm days in March. I walked around a pond in western Mass on March 21 and took these photos -- so reminiscent of the skunk cabbage my mother liked to show me along the streams and ponds in Danvers when I was young.

I have always enjoyed the sight of skunk cabbage and the faint skunky smell. I welcome this sign of spring.
For this month's column, I have written about another plant that appears very early in spring: snowdrops.
