Moccasin Flower Haiku

img_9503.jpg

I’ll never forget the day I discovered this little beauty on the side

of the road in a bog.  My sister-in-law and I were in search of

Lady Slippers, which are rare in our area.   These Moccasin flowers

are even more rare.  We had already found the Lady Slippers and

were driving along slowly when I spotted this flower.  I was so

excited because I’ve never seen one before, except in pictures,

that I jumped out of the truck and into the bog to get pictures

of it.   I soaked my shoes, but it was worth it.

I also found a Nodding Trillium that day too.   Those aren’t  very

common either.
