Snakeshead, adder’s root, arum, wild arum, arum lily, lords-and-ladies, devils and angels, cows and bulls, cuckoo-pint, Adam and Eve, bobbins, naked boys, starch-root, wake robin, friar’s cowl and jack in the pulpit, this sign of spring has many names.
To most of us in Michigan, it is known as jack in the pulpit. The sign that spring will soon be preaching. The forest will soon be alive with,
Lily of the valley, one of the nicest smells of the forest floor.
And the creeks will be filled with marsh marigolds.
Welcome spring. We all celebrate the promise of warmer days that inspires hope in all of us.
