Lady Slipper

I found this little beauty while escorting Rebecca to her soccer practice on Tuesday. It was right the edge of the path worn down down by those of us in the know of the shortcut along the football field and the drainage ditch to the far field. I'm amazed that it hadn't been trampled or picked by some wayward toddler.

Rebecca never noticed it, she was focused on getting to the field. I, however, stopped to admire this rare sight and, obviously, take pictures. I hope to survives a bit longer, it would be nice to have more growing along the path and in the woods.

It goes to show that if you keep your eyes open there is almost always something new to see.
