The start of a new small painting, a group of lady slippers. Some of the colours including the purply pink of the ladyslippers , are not right.
They are really named fairy slippers, but we grew up calling them lady slippers, so that’s still what I say. They are very special, blooming for a few days in June in the dark mossy bush. There are many fewer in the region, now that our pine trees are mostly gone.
For plant lovers they are Calypso bulbosa.
