Cosmic Photo Challenge

Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids.

The new Cosmic Photo Challenge is Rebirth and Remembrance.

As it’s spring in Ontario it got me thinking about some of the plant species that will be appearing over the next few weeks. One of the plants in this part of Ontario is the Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchid. As perennial it is reborn each spring and being an Orchid it is associated with remembrance.

Yellow and green in week 22.

Some Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids on the South Bruce Peninsula. A variable plant around here, some years we have a good display of them, other years we don’t seem to see many. This year seems fairly typical, no spectacular shows but plenty about if you look for them.

These are growing on the edge of a side road where the power company cleared the brush from underneath the power lines last autumn.
