It was warm yesterday 86 F or 30 C . And humid. We were invited to the neighbors for supper. Another night of no cooking. Yay! Pork burgers and potato salad yum!!
The Smoky Hills were real smoky..when humidity hangs in the air they take on a smoky appearance.
We saw a deer. If she had a fawn it was well hidden.
We heard from a fellow woodcarver today that she had a double Lady’s Slipper near the end of her drive.
I took some photos of it as a reference just incase we want to carve a double. Far Guy is still carving single Lady’s Slippers, he carves them to donate to silent auctions at local benefits.
What I look for is how the one stem splits off to make two smaller leaves and then two flower buds. It might not seem like a big deal but woodcarvers are a meticulous bunch. As you can see the flowers are coming to an end in the warm weather.
I managed to find an almost perfect single. This one might be notecard worthy:)
