Pink Lady’s Slipper
This springs’s batch of orchids is a bit smaller than in previous years. I haven’t done an extensive survey, but I am guessing that there are probably about 50 of them within 100 feet of our deck. It still amazes me that they return year after year. I am up in the woods quite a lot, and haven’t seen any other concentrations of them. For some reason the conditions near to the house are perfect.
