These ladyslippers are in the woods behind my house. I think they are an unusual wildflower and when I found these, I started trying to protect the area where they grow. You see, my woods is in the middle of an old subdivision that backs up to a new subdivision. A fair amount of kids walk and bike through the area.
As is typical of children, they don't spend a lot of time looking down at wildflowers or worry about stepping or riding over them. So since I enjoy seeing these reappear each year I try to set up some road blocks with rocks and tree limbs that will redirect traffic. Just my own little effort at nature preservation.
So these little beauties are my close up view for today. Hope you have had time to stop and appreciate the smaller things in your world. And to see more you can visit Studio Waterstone.
