Happy Earth Day! My gift to you? A Jack in the Pulpit sketch…
I live in the Midwest which is not a very exotic place, but this plant, although native, is very exotic to me. I love the shape and the stripes it possesses. It is most dramatic where I found it; in a woodland setting amongst last year’s oak leaves which were scattered about the forest floor. What a wonderful encounter!
Here is the actual photo. These guys were pretty small, maybe 6 inches tall. I found them at the Little Red Schoolhouse in Willow Springs, IL.
Miracles are unfolding all around us and I am blessed to have found some.
