About Today’s Photo:

The pink lady’s slipper is in bloom along the Mailbox Trail. I’ve seen these lovely orchids in the same place every year, and now there are even a few more! Lady’s slipper prefer acid soils and are usually found in coniferous woodlands. The part of the Mailbox Trail where these beauties bloom is lined with balsam fir.
