yellow lady’s slipper
During Spring in the mountains when one orchid is finished another is starting to bloom. The Calypso has retreated into the mossy forest floor.
The Yellow Lady’s Slipper is now blooming close to springs and bogs. The blooms do not last long. The same plant can have flowers both blooming and withering.
I kept an eye out and saw the leaves of the next species of orchid that will flower. They are at least another week away.
