Sunshine

My husband chose our route home today just so I could see these little beauties. It's a lady slipper, and with all that has been going on lately (I'll go into details soon) they were just the spot of sunshine I needed...

Oh, love them! Wondered about them this morning when I noticed the picture you gave me of the pink ones.

My mother-in-law and I were ecstatic to stumble upon yellow lady slippers when we visited in May several years ago. They were the first I had seen in real life.

Hope things look up for you soon, and that you find many other little blessings along the way.

I have to say that I'm very impressed with the diversity of plants and flowers on the island....I never dreamed that there could be so many different little things on such a tiny island!

As we were hiking through the island on Saturday, there was a mom and her three little girls and the oldest, who appeared to be about 4 yrs old shouted, "Mommy! Lady slippers!" It was so cute seeing her actually recognize the name of them! Take care sweetie. :)

Take care.

Such pretty and intricate flowers, hope their brightness stays with you. We have gorgeous weather in Scotland at the moment so I send you some of our sunshine too.

Lovely Lady's Slipper. I went in search of them about a week ago and was directed to a nearby lake area where they were in abundance. I posted some on my blog if your are interested in seein some pink one. Your yellow one is spectacular.

You are sooooo lucky to have these on the island! I have never, ever actually seen one. I understand they do grow in the PNW but so far I've never found one blooming.

This a a beautiful shot. Makes me smile! Thank you!
