I did get just a few photos of the Yellow Lady’s Slippers on the back driveway. This year there are seven blooms. Ten years ago we had three blooms. You have to be patient!
The seventh is there but very hard to see off to the left of slipper number five. If there weren’t located in a sea of Poison Ivy I would have gotten closer. I already have one spot of miserable ivy on my hand ..I suppose from my friend Chance.
Far Guy and I have the same conversation every year. He says “I don’t see the Yellow Lady’s Slippers..I bet they didn’t make the winter.” I reply “Be patient, they will show up for Fathers Day..and so far I have been correct.”
These Yellow Slippers along the back drive are very shaded by the trees to the west of the drive, if they were in a sunny location they would bloom earlier. The ones located in the gardens just west of these are all done blooming and have been for many weeks.
This evening we found two new Lady Slipper Plants in our Gardens..they were a nice surprise. They are just tiny and may bloom in a couple of years..patience:)
