Mountain Lady’s Slippers

Seldom do I go out looking for a particular flower, but after an outing yesterday it occurred to me that the Lady’s Slippers should be starting to bloom and so today I drove to a place where I usually see them and, happily, they are in peak bloom. I’m glad that I didn’t miss it! They are one of the prettiest of the wild orchids native to this region.
