Sometimes, a little bit of luck helps.
While out for a bike ride the other weekend, I startled this deer off in the bushes. It disappeared before I could snap a picture of it. But, on the other side of the road, I noticed these beauties coming into flower. These are Small Yellow Lady-Slippers, an orchid that grows in North America. These are the first time that I have seen them. It seems this year is a first for a lot of new flowers for me.
Just lucky, I guess.
