3 Demure Pink’s

Pink Lady's Slipper wildflower, photographed by Jeff Zablow at Chapman State Park, NY

June 2016, and Petra and I stayed in cabin CC! at Chapman State Park, awaiting the Presentation that I would give on June 3rd at the Jamestown Audubon Center. Western New York is lush, beautiful, and the Mother Lode for wildlife and wildflowers.

I reconnoitered the very same spot we found the year before, at about the same stretch of June. Could not find what I was looking for the first day I searched, but the next day there they were. A loosely spread-out grouping of Pink  Lady’s Slippers. America’s favorite native orchids.

The operative word is ‘demure.’ Random House’s Webster College Dictionary define demure as coyly decorous. These 3 wildflowers struck me as little princesses, coyly posed there, shyly presenting their radiant freshness and beauty.

I Love these blooms. They set my heart ablaze, TBT.

NB, We leave for Georgia in 2 days. Will be offline during that time, and I’ll be scouring that sylvan state for winged beauties and green, lush wildflowers . . .

 

One thought on “3 Demure Pink’s

  1. the words link the image in ones mind in a way that can only be described as wondrous….each bloom a confirmation of beauty that cannot be duplicated other than with the magic that first created it, oh so long ago for us to celebrate, TODAY thanks to this blog!
    well done
