Wildflower Royalty

Daily Image - 28 May 2011 - Wildflower Royalty

Our cold, wet spring has set plant growth back considerably, but two days of heat and sun have sparked a torrent of activity and wildflowers in their thousands are trying to catch up. This Pink Lady’s Slipper, or Cypripedium acaule is a member of the orchid family. We have several patches which come up faithfully every spring for us to enjoy for too brief a period before they are gone for another year.

    Hi Gerry
    That is my favourite so far, I love how the dark background really set off the colours and beauty of the whole plant, the sun hits it just right. Beautiful..
