I’m always delighted to find a patch of this Wisconsin wildflower. The pink ladyslipper (Cypripedium acaule) is one of Wisconsin’s wild orchids.
There’s a wayside near Necedah where they grow, I’ve yet to find them in other areas - but maybe someday.
They're a rather large orchid, maybe the size of an Iris. . .
A little further down the road this raccoon crossed our path.
He crossed the ditch and came out wet on the other side. “Bye Bandit!”
and still further down the road I found a field of blue. Lupine is very important to the endangered Karner Blue Butterfly - I tried to find the butterfly, but all I found was lupine. Someday though I will see one!
