A few weeks ago Keenan and I were in Prince George and we found a lovely little park on a bluff over looking the Fraser River. We went for a nice walk and on the way back somehow beneath all the Devil's Club leaves Keenan spotted a Mountain Lady Slipper Orchid!
A little secret I will tell you, Keenan and I are "plant geeks" and have a list of rare native plants we would like to find. Sort of like a Botanists Bucket List. So we were so excited as this rare orchid is one of the plants we have been hoping to find. And the funny thing is it was such an unexpected place to see one. On the way back up the trail I spotted another orchid with a 2 more flowers on it.
Do you know if you have any rare native plants growing where you live?
