Jon Crispin's Notebook

Pink Lady’s Slipper

Posted in Flowers, Orchids, rare plants by joncrispin on 24/05/2015

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.
