Location: Homebase, Washington, Maine
Weather: 70’s, tons of sun, and a light cool breeze
Observation: Pink Lady’s-slipper (Cypripedium acaule) are one of four species of Lady Slippers found in Maine. Though this is one of the common ones, I have seen just a few along my meandering walks in the woods behind our house. The understory of our backyard is a mix of dry, woods and boggy areas. Just the right environment for a scattering of these beauties whose appearance is brief likely disappearing by end of June.
