Skunks in the garden

 
Most of our gardening friends are horrified we have yellow skunk cabbage in the garden.
 
“Don’t you know it smells?”
“Yes”
“ Don’t you know it's an invasive American weed?”
 
“Yes”.
 But we reckon that it would have great difficulty escaping from our artificial bog.
 
Trouble is I like the look of it, despite its pungent smell and unfortunate name.
 
On a warm sunny day like today in the quiet of the garden it’s difficult to believe we are in the middle of a global crisis.
 
Then this afternoon I took a walk through the empty streets of Bridge of Allan and looked at all the closed shops and the horror of our predicament is brought home with a jolt.
How long can this last?
