*Cypripedium acaule

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter…to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring—these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”

— John Burroughs

    do you happen to know the common name of this strange, lovely bulb? is there a native american name for this botanical creature of the wild woods in which you wander? inquiring minds want to know…

    :)

  2. I had no idea that was what Lady’s Slippers looked like!
    Thank you for your rambling, and your discoveries, and your photographs, and your wild weirdnesses
    ;-)
