Swamp lantern

Melanie Price sent in this lovely photo of a Swamp Lantern.

"Here's a pretty swamp lantern that we came across while birdwatching in Whisper Creek Habitat Restoration. 

"We also saw our first ruby-crowned kinglet but were not able to get a photo of it."

Whisper Creek is located on the grounds of the now demolished Cedarbrook Elementary school on Perkins Way.

It straddles the boundary between Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

In my youth we called this a flower of the skunk cabbage.

Skunk cabbage is the more common name for this plant, but this one did not have a skunk smell yet so I opted for the more romantic common name. :-)
