Pink Lady's Slipper

One of our Arboretum board members brought me a photo of several Pink Lady's Slippers that she found growing in the woodlands near her home. Flora is one of the most generous individuals I know - ALWAYS bringing delicious home-baked goodies to the staff, offering assistance when we need it most, and supporting our efforts for over 15 years! I wanted to surprise her with a small painting of a flower she loves .... and hope this will please her.

It's been raining and should be all week. We've been very dry with a 9" rain deficit, so this week's showers are a tremendous welcome. Our temperatures remain high, and the rain, though keeping us from making progress on the formal gardens, should make our change in leaf color more vivid.

I've a number of writing deadlines to meet -- so I'm off to pound the keys ... I hope you have a great day!

So gentle and lovely Lin. I know she'll love and appreciate it always.
We too are still getting hard rains and some flooding but not in my neighborhood. Where are my tall boots!!
Hugs,

A lovely painting. I'm sure Flora will love it, too.
