One of four Yellow Lady Slippers I found yesterday. A peculiar thing I have observed about the Yellow Lady Slippers there is that in the 4 or 5 trips I've made over 3 different years to see them, they never seem to bloom in the same place. I know where to find Trillium every spring and Bloodroot. The same is true of other flowers. They come up in the same general areas every year. When I go to the Barrens looking for Yellow Lady Slippers however I never find them where they were the prior year, not even close to the same place. Maybe it is just a matter of timing but it is very odd and it makes them difficult to spot. This link will take you to a gallery of 44 photos from the two trips I made to the Barrens this year.
