Still waiting for six numbers to add to the 2009 Bookmark Challenge total. Many participants are still taking donations and will collect bookmarks year-round, but I hope to have a number soon. The rest can be counted in next year’s total.
Around here, it’s spring!
Actually, the entire month of May has been gorgeous. Last weekend, I went orchid hunting. My goal was to locate at least a dozen.
In the past, I’ve only seen these fairy slippers in small numbers: singles, pairs, trios scattered through the aspen forest. I’d never seen them until we moved here.
Maybe it’s a little early in the year, but it took me a while to locate a dozen.
Then, on the way home, I happened upon this:
There are a dozen in this shot alone! It was a four-square-foot garden of fairy slippers, probably more than fifty of them all together.
Now I know!
