Wildflower Walk Around the Frog Pond

June 14, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Laura and I took a wildflower walk around the Frog Pond, Sir Sanford Fleming Park, on Sunday primarily for the Pink Lady's Slipper Orchid. We had been checking the area every week so as to not miss the lady's slipper yet we almost missed the peak anyways. Some flower heads were already fading. It is challenging to post just one example of dozens of photos.



Along one of the boggy edges of the Frog Pond were Cuckoo Flowers.

The red-pink Rhodora is always a treat even though it is so common.




The White Rhodora is far less common in my area, indeed I know of only one plant growing alongside Sandy Cove Road, Halifax Regional Municipality. Every year Laura has asked me to photograph it and I'd always vaccilate until it was gone but not this year.
