Bon-bons for Bears (Flower Friday)

You know it’s spring when the bright yellow of the Skunk Cabbage, also known as the Skeena Lily, begins appearing in any areas where it’s wet and boggy.

According to dear-old-Wiki the Skunk Cabbage flowers attracts flies and midges whilst the roots are food for bears, eating them after hibernating as a laxative or cathartic. The plant was used by indigenous people as medicine for burns and injuries.
