(Jack in the Pulpit - 04) We marvel at all the interesting things that God has spread out upon this earth for us to enjoy and preserve for future generations. The jack-in-the-pulpit is just one of these points of interest we look for every spring. This wildflower is also called "Indian turnip", because of its corms which the Native American ate. The jack-in-the-pulpit can be found all along the eastern seacoast of the United States and as far west as Kansas.
