Ladyslippers & Cowboy Boots

Ladyslippers commonly grow wild here in the ditches, but they only flower for a short time & are done by summertime. When we first came here, Mr Shoes noticed how they delighted me & dug some up, which I then transplanted into my garden. Each Spring there are a few more beautiful Ladyslippers putting on a show just for me; I am still  just as delighted  to see them, & they remind me what a loving & thoughtful man I am lucky to be married to for the last 27 years.

    1. The blooms look so delicate to me, yet they grow in the ditches - a reminder that strength & beauty can be found anywhere.
