...still growing taller all the time...
....and developing buds! I scoured my wildflower books, and at this stage I thought it might be pinesap , but it just didn't look right.
About a week later, this is what I saw! Friends, I think we have an orchid of some sort here!
There's a pinkish hue, no fragrance, and still no green in the leaves! More internet searches, and I discovered the identity:Epipactis helleborine , a.k.a. "weed orchid"! Weed?! What?!
Someone considers this cute little orchid to be a weed? That's just kooky talk! According to the links, most of the time this plant does have green, as well as some other colors. Mine is an aberration-even more cool!
