I went in search of a patch of ladyslippers that I had spotted a couple years ago. Last year I had missed the bloom time. This year I hit it just right. Photographing wild flowers while walking three dogs isn't the easiest task. They don't share my interest and see no point in stopping at the places I choose. The ladyslippers are a bit off the trail, so I wrapped the leashes around a tree and left them for a bit, which made it easier to get the pictures without damaging the delicate plants.
|This is Jack's back end jumping over a downed tree.|
Maya on the left and Theo on the right.
|Theo went over the three downed trees|
with more confidence today.
|Another pretty little wildflower.|
|We were down near the river and saw these three|
geese sitting on a log.
|This must be some variety of Oxalis.|
|Jack laid down in the stream and his stick|
|When he couldn't find the stick he|
grabbed this stupid rock instead.
|Jack and Theo were out front and side by side most of the time.|
|Maya was content to walk next|
to or right behind me.
