Lady Slippers!!!

For many years we have had large areas of wild "lady slipper" flowers to come up and bloom in the spring in our woodlands. I tried several times to move some to the yard, but they do NOT like being moved! So all mine were dead until last week DH came to get me from the house in a hurry to see a "surprise". Lo and behold, there are three lady slippers up and getting ready to bloom right in the side yard in the pine straw under a pine tree! And NOT where we planted them years ago! I don't know what's going on with them, but I'm SO happy to see them; when they open their color, I'll post another photo. They're pink.
And this is a few little items I ordered recently online.......wonderful tiny brass lockets....both round and rectangular.......that actually open! And check out the bag of little china doll arms with hands! And a new shape pink heart-shaped clay piece; a little lock and key; and several pairs of these neat small and SHARP little scissors.......so cheap! And some gold beads on sale also...........oboy, I love shopping online. In my pajamas. Any time of day or night. I may never dress and "go shopping" in real malls again!
