I'm not crazy; it's still way too early for spring. Even so, on my walk in Naugatuck State Forest this afternoon, I saw our first wildflowers of the year:
Yep, those are definitely Skunk Cabbage blossoms! Well, technically the flowers are inside of that mottled hood (a "spathe"), and it may not have opened entirely yet, but I'm calling it: The first flowers of spring are here!
All hail the mighty Skunk Cabbage!
