  1. Very nicely done. do I get the headings under the photographs ?

    Mayflowers ?? W hat does this plant grow tall, what kind of flower ? Judging by its size now..this must get to be a ginormous plant ?

    Skunk cabbage ??? Never heard of it ?

    These pics near this where you live or how close is this to your residence ? Walking distance ? Or ?

    Again, nice pics. But I'm a sucker for photographs.
    You could lead me down any garden path you want with photos.
    Lovely, lovely, lovely...................

  2. I am losing my mind. I called those may flowers, they are may apples. They get a white flower with a yellow center that blooms under the leaf. They will probably get to 12 inches tall. The leaf opens out like a flat umbrella. The one on the right is about fully grown.
