~ rarity ~
Sometimes, there is kindness in the things we refrain from doing...
As tempting as these lovelies are for little hands to pick, (I have to admit, I was more than a little worried our rogue 4 year old would attempt to litter the forest floor with lady slipper bulbs) we spent a morning just looking and talking about these lady slippers. We discovered the look of their leaves so that even when we couldn't spy a flower, we knew a lady slipper had been or would soon be there...and we knew to tread a little more carefully, just in case. We even learned a new word in the process..."rare". Our six year old was in love with this word for about a week and tried applying it to other things as well. Some pretty funny...(no honey, the dog isn't rare but she is one of a kind!).
