Fairy slipper

Here’s a special little treat you can find on forest floors around here if you’re sharp-eyed. I love finding these fairy slippers (calypso bulbosa) around this time of year.

They grow among the leaves and duff. You can see how small they are. They look like something a tiny mythical creature might wear as a corsage.

  1. Aargh! I had written a little poem about your fairy slippers the wee people who live on the forest floor, but Blogger gobbled it up and spit it out and I quit! But I like your photos! And it’s true – one can find lots of wonderful things in the forest!
