Clustered Lady’s-slipper – Cypripedium fasciculatum grows wild in Montana, but very rare. See the map on the link.
It’s been an interesting week here in Montana in my world of different shades of greens. The delightful and the difficult first the delightful foremost on my mind is the random act of good that was unexpected. The photo of the red flower a few posts down North Dakota dairy farm. I was talking to the caretaker of the plant. I told her that I had taken photos of the flowers of the plant, and that in the process I had fallen in love with how beautiful and amazing this flowering plant was. It just so happened that, that day the keeper of the plant, had taken cuttings from the plant and put the cuttings into a bucket. The lady doesn’t know me very well, she barely knows my name asked me if I would like a couple of cuttings? Surprised and delighted I asked what kind of flower it was? She told me it’s an orchid. Funny, how something so random could be so meaningful. The second delight was last night Navar points to the livingroom window and says “Wow look at that a really small fawn, go grab your camera. Quick grab your camera!” Looking out of the window it was the smallest fawn I had ever seen not much bigger than a chawawa. How could the fawn be so small maybe it had just been born in the last day or two. I noticed that the mother was very small. We watched as the fawn followed her walking behind playfully hoping around. I did not get much of a photo. I didn’t want to open the door and scare them. I wanted them to feel safe in our yard and to come back again sometime. What’s been delighting you this week? Have you had difficulties that you have had to address this week? It’s been strange to be back home it’s nice to see some familiar faces and spending time at the lake has been fun. Has it been hot where you live? How are you staying cool this summer? I know some places you are experiencing the opposite the dance of seasons. If you would like to please leave a link to one of your favorite posts from your blog.
