Calypso bulbosa


it is fairy slipper season 


they rise from a tangle on the forest floor


one here, two there
like magic 

wild orchids


cloaked in raindrop gems


the lovely 
Calypso bulbosa

  7. Be still my heart! I'm so excited to see that you found these gems. Since there is now 2' of snow at my house, I'm not sure if I'll find any when I get home in June. Thanks for sharing yours!
