Two days ago, right before a brief but violent thunderstorm, I was in my backyard taking photos of the plants in bloom. While braving the weeds and the approaching storm, I noticed a plant I couldn't identify. I took some photos and meant to search the web (although how you can find out what something is when all you really know about it is that it has large green leaves is a question best left for another day), but I didn't get to that step until this morning. And in the interim, it occurred to me that perhaps the jack-in-the-pulpit returned. We had some back before we had the pond installed, but I thought it hadn't survived being moved from the pond site to the enormous dirt-and-compost pile on the driveway and then to it's final home along the path to the pond. Which made me sad as it positively thrived on the compost pile. I wish I had photos of it then. Anyway, this morning I googled on jack-in-the-pulpit as although I can remember what the flower part looks like, I had no memory of the leaves. And I think I found a match. I'll have to keep an eye on the plant(s) as if it blooms, I want photos.
