Ghost Orchid

Remember the Pink Lady's Slipper photo from my last entry? The pale image incorporated into this piece is the water transfer made from that photo. The early spring wildflowers are also called spring emphemerals - those that bloom and set seed before the deciduous leaves are fully out and then disappear until next spring. I am aware when I walk in the summer woods that many of those plants that were blooming so gloriously in May are now invisible.

The indoor activities become less engaging once summer arrives in the mountains. So, the daily practice becomes weekly or even less frequent when family joins me here. A beautiful day nudges us out onto the Outlet in the canoe.
