We went to Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve in New Hope, Pa. today for their annual native plant sale. We have been slowly turning over our very modest backyard with native plants and wildflowers. This year we purchased some Purple Coneflowers and a couple of varieties of purple asters (we need more late summer/fall blooming plants) as well as a couple of Jack-in-the-Pulpits.
Anyway we got there early and had about two hours to wander around before the sale began. The morning started off very slowly. The only new flowers seemed to be the Mayapples. The we hit the jackpot finding some blooming Fiery Pinks and then a small grouping of three Large Yellow Lady’s Slippers – the first of the season for me. And speaking of hitting the jackpot, we headed to the pond after making our purchase and hit the frog jackpot so there will be some more frog photos during the week to come.
This particular image was made with my Canon 30D; Sigma 150mm Macro lens; tripod mounted.
Hope you enjoy the image.
