First Sign of Spring

Two Skunk Cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus) sprouts poking their way through the snow

I visited Todmorden Mills today and noticed that Skunk Cabbage was starting to push through the thin layer of snow. This is one of the harbingers of spring!

I noticed Skunk Cabbage today too—in part of the Don Watershed along the Castle Frank Brook in the Nordheimer Ravine.
