This Jack-in-the-Pulpit shows up every year in our garden. I wonder if it comes up from the woods that use to be here, or if the previous owners transplanted it at some time in the past. Either way, I love when it arrives! It is a fascinating plant.
With the green of the flower and the purple stripes, it reminds me of something ancient…or a strange circus tent…or stockings of a can-can dancer. Weird what images come up in my mind when I look at this intriguing plant. I do not usually see green as a flower color, so this intrigues me. Sort of a leaf…that decided to shine brighter and build itself into a flower.
What do you see?
