Ladyslipper's blooming!!!!! I can soooo get used to this! It bloomed for the first time last year, and that was terrific. But I know how temperamental wildflowers can be...it took 3 full years before this bloomed, and there was one of those years I didn't even see foliage. But since I'm patient (lazy), I didn't remove the marker or plant something else in the spot....and my patience (laziness) was absolutely rewarded! But I'm still somewhat surprised to see blooms 2 years in a row. I guess the growing conditions in the wild are iffy with regard to precip, so the ladyslippers just "rest" when conditions aren't right. But since I water this area regularly, I get this awesome performance! Yay!
