Was out in the rain the other day, tromping through the woods, trying to convince Ernie to come inside and what did I spy? Why, it's a lady slipper. Just growing wild out there all by it's lonesome. Of course, I'm a moe and I wasn't even sure if it was a lady slipper so I had to text a picture to Lynn for confirmation. She's beautiful, my lady slipper. Yesterday I watched a deer nibble in her direction. Not sure if deer eat lady slippers. They sure as hell eat everything else. But they have really cool tails so I guess it all evens out.
