Springtime favorite

Fairy slipper1

These enchanting fairy slipper flowers (calypso bulbosa) are gems I’ve found each April since I’ve lived in Sequim. This year only one has bloomed where I’ve typically found two or three. But a peek around the trunk of a tree revealed these.

The blossoms are less than an inch in size and the tallest of these plants is probably six inches high as it leans toward filtered sunlight. As you can see, aside from stems and blossoms, there is little foliage to herald these diminutive plants.
