Orchid in the Ditch
A Pink Lady Slipper
We have pink lady slippers growing in the ditch of the state highway right-of-way in front of our house. Every year I have to run out when they come to mow the roadside and ask the guy to spare the orchids. Anna and I went out to see the lady slippers today. On the way we found that wild strawberries are ripe.
