Jack-in-the-pulpits aplenty

The Jack-in-the-pulpits have been plentiful in Bent Tree this year.   Following are pictures taken in Bent Tree from March 31, 2012 – May 30, 2012.  The last picture shows a seed pod forming.  The seed pod will turn bright red in late summer or early fall.  When Jack-in-the-pulpit is first emerging in the spring, it is sometimes mistaken for poison ivy.  Click thumbnails to scroll through larger images:
