A longtime rural resident, I use my 60 plus years of life learning to opinionate here and elsewhere on the “interweb” on everything from politics to environmental issues. A believer in reasonable discourse rather than unhelpful attacks I try to give positive input to the blogesphere, so feel free to comment upon rural issues or anything else posted here. But don’t be surprised if you comments get zapped if you are not polite in your replys.

Thanks Ma!

Ma Nature that is. Each year we look for new woodland flowers along our woodland trails and usually find one or two that we had not previously seen here. This year we were blown away when we spotted a Yellow Lady Slipper which emerged for the first time. Not only that but is showed up in our “Woodland Garden” area near the house and not way back on the trails. Our multitude of Showy Orchids are particularly thick this year, in fact all the woodland flowers seem to be recovering from that particularly dry spell last year.

Where are the pictures you ask! Not to worry, although I don’t want to “slow my blog down” with pics you can find them on my web site which also pictures our trails and other woodland flowers.
