They are such beautiful flowers Martin... i have never seen them... so i looked them up... it's to bad that they stink when they are in bloom... great image....petersmile
Martin from Stone: Yes that is the down side, I took this image yesterday on a visit to the Savile Gardens near to Windsor in Berkshire. The stream banks were planted with hundreds of these mainly in yellow with a few of these white ones, quite a sight in the sunshine.

Looks like an arum to me, Martin.
Martin from Stone: All in the same family, not the same appeal for using as cut flowers as arums, they have a distinct sewage smell

Never heard of theme before but they look pretty. I have a poor sense of smell so that works to my advantage in this case. smile
Martin from Stone: That would be an advantage with close up work, boy do they stink!
Stunningly beautiful Martin!
I have always heard of skunk cabbage but have never seen it in bloom. Reminded me o arum too which is nice in flower arrangements.
Despite their awful smell, Martin, they look to be a rather attractive flower; especially in this shot of yours.
A most unusual plant, well seen...
Fine shot Martin, I've heard about the smell of these things but never experienced it thankfully.
