Orchid Walk

Orchid WalkOrchidwalk2Orchid Walk1Our yellow lady slippers are just finishing their bloom, but our showy (pink) lady slippers will be blooming in a few days. Other plants now blooming are our numerous jack-in-the-pulpits and Canadian aquilegia. Our blue bead lily is setting its seed and will produce a beautiful blue bead seed pod in the coming weeks. The woodland poppy is an endangered species in Ontario and we are fortunate to have about 12 of them in our orchid walk. They have finished blooming as well, but their seed pods are showing promise. We will carefully harvest the seeds when ready and will try to grow our family of poppies!
