We’re fortunate to have some forested conservation land pretty close to our house, and I often take Amy for walks there. There’s a log she really likes climbing over, and a “bridge” (actually a boardwalk) over some wet areas, but one of the best parts in the right season is what I call Ladyslipper Corner. Right now, for example, there are probably more than twenty pink ladyslippers all within about a twenty-five foot circle. Here’s one.

…and here’s Amy with another.

Life is good.
