Skunk Cabbage & Spiderwebs

I wrote about the skunk cabbages (kind of) in February. I still haven’t noticed a smell, which seems weird given it’s reputation, not that I’m complaining. I think it’s a really cool plant for several reasons. The article on Wikipedia – linked previously – isn’t long (worth the read, in other words). Anyway, this is a picture of the flower with one part of the protective shell broken off, so you can see the inside.

The other non-theme thing I have to write about is this really cool spiderweb I found when I was splitting wood a couple of weeks ago. I have no idea why the spider built its web like this (I don’t think it could catch anything, but what do I know?), but I liked the way it seemed to emphasize the shape of the stump.

There are more pictures here.
