The week that included the equinox brought a run of more nice weather, calling me out to note the signs of what seems to be an unusually early spring. As usually happens in Juneau, the development of spring-y signs varied a lot from place to place.
Skunk cabbage was just poking through to the surface in some low-elevation spots, but up, open, and flowering in others. All these early ones were in female phase, not a male-phase inflorescence to be found (each flower in the inflorescence is first female and then male). So no pollination was possible yet.
