Ramson's season has started!

The snow has just melted, but there is a lot of ramson greens everywhere around here. Since olden times these leaves were saving people of Kamchatka from scurvy (lack of vitamins). Bear's onion is another name for this plant. However I never saw bears eating it. Apparently, only humans are capable to bear such a strong odor, similar to mix of onion and garlic.

After spring snowfall.
