I Heart Macro

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.

Smile and be creative,


  1. Love the color of the flower and I love being able to see the fuzzies on the flower and stem. Good luck on keeping the kiddos away from those beauties!

  2. Beautiful! Perhaps you can kind of make a new bike path that skirts would never know the difference as long as its a path they would probably keep their bikes on it...hmmmm, then again...maybe ride all over. Keep us up to date on your efforts :)

  3. Beautiful shots - love the color of pink, too! I hope you're able to protect these beauties from the bikes and kiddo's! :)

  4. So pretty! I hope your efforts at preservation are successful! :)

  5. Good for you and your preservation efforts! These certainly look like delicate flowers. Love their lacy look and their color!

  6. I love these delicate little flowers!


Love to hear from my readers! So join in the fun.
