Finding a Smile

Remember when we all talked about “Life Savors”, those ordinary things that make life special? 🙂

Some of the examples you mentioned were awesome!

I loved them so much that I compiled a list and put it here on the blog. (To see it, click on the pink heart “Life Savors” button, located in the sidebar.)

Recently, my parents moved to Cape Cod. While visiting them last week, my daughter and I discovered a breath-taking little example of a life savor in a wooded area of their yard.

One majestic Lady Slipper

As you probably already know, the Lady Slipper is a wild orchid. Wildflowers of all kinds are becoming more rare as development of the land increases. In Massachusetts, since 1935, wild orchids have been protected by a law that states in part that . . . “No person shall pull up or dig up the plant of a wild orchid, . . .”

My daughter took the picture with her cell phone, but I think you can see why it made us smile!

I hope you bump into a few “life savors” this weekend! 😀

See ya Monday!
