In the pulpit - A Pic a Day in May #22

These plants are fairly common around here this time of year, so you'd think I would be able to get a better photo. But the paths and grassy areas I need to walk through where they grow are dark and wet. Tuesday was so dark that it felt like the middle of December instead of the end of May.

A jack-in-the-pulpit. They produce vivid red berries later on.

But do not despair. At least not yet. The sky this morning looks clear and, even though the heat is on now, we may actually see some sun today.

  1. these plants inhabit swampy areas around here. I had to put the air conditioner on yesterday; hot and humid!

  2. I'll settle for this photo- thanks, I've never seen a Jack in the pulpit growing in the wild.
