I read somewhere that wherever you find the whipoorwill, you will also find lady slippers. I know it's true because since I moved to this property in 2002, I have been hearing the whipoorwill's and finding a rare lady slipper here and there. This year, I have found 4 plants. Each of the photos below is a different plant. Just wanted to share.Image

Hi

Neat photos.

My bride is a shutterbug.

Here is a photo of a flower that grows along side some of our roads nearby. I call it a powder puff.

Aside from the roof leak, soft floors, rats, mice and bursted plumbing ........ how do you like it?
