Enjoying Spring Blooms #7

June's beautiful colors...

Baptisia Australis (False Indigo)

We collect car magnets from our trips :-) 
 I planted this Mock Orange bush 15 years ago, and love the scent. 
A forget-me-not lunch at camp. 
We planted myrtle at camp many years ago, and it's fun to watch butterflies enjoy it. 

I almost didn't show you this garden gate because Mother Nature has taken it's toll on it. But it will always be my gateway to my secret garden behind our camp. It's a great place to one can find you's so peaceful in the woods. 

This pretty spring bloom surprised us at camp. This is the first time that Lady Slippers (Mocassin Flower) was found growing at camp, and Joe spotted it and called me outside. I could not believe my eyes. I invited the neighbor over, and she was just as surprised as I was. What a treasure. 

 Joe enjoys appetizers before dinner at camp, and I am happy to join him. Do you love Boursin cheese and French wine too?

Our tradition on Father's Day is to visit the Showy Pink Ladyslippers that grow in a marshy area (secret spot) near our camp. The landowners are nice enough to let us take pictures. 

Thank you for stopping by!
