    Beautiful photo of skunk cabbage. It reminds me of my childhood. Now if you just add “smell-o-vision” to the photo!

    Now, if it would stop raining in Portland long enough so I could work on my garden:
    Can’t wait to smell like dirt.

    Bluehaunt, I think I got a large enough dose of that smell for all of us! Kate, I love your beautiful garden, and it’s really time for the rain to stop.

    I was out your way briefly in the early seventies. You folks have monster slugs. My chickens would love them.

    Your chickens are welcome to them!
