Here is my entry for theThe Saturday Photo Hunt - Grin
 
I did my best, but this is as close to 'grin' as I am going to get,  without a lot more practice!!
 
 
Have a great weekend everyone!   Ours happens to be very windy and rainy as a result of a passing tropical storm.  Some participants in this week's Photo Hunt are are also posting "sky" photos.  There is way too much rain for a 'today' shot, but here is one from yesterday showing the gathering cloud banks on the horizon.
 
 
 
 
However, when our human beans  were out getting some fresh air they also took this photo.
 
 
I thought I would share it!
 
PS - Several people have asked -  this is the pink Lady's Slipper (called 'slipper' because of the shape of the bloom) which grows wild in forested areas in Nova Scotia and does not mind acidic soil.  There is also a yellow Lady's Slipper, which grows only in areas where there are limestone deposits (near the gypsum mine for instance) so it is not as common.

Our weekend was better too because the tropical storm passed away in time. Our mom loves pink lady's slippers. There are many orchids that grown in North America.

I really love big open mouths!!!!!

We're got those slippery things in our garden! Well... they're under the trees but the peep plants primroses under trees so I think it's still part of the garden.

Purrs,

Thank you for the picture of the awesome flower. I have never seen a pink Lady’s slipper but I can see why it has the name that it does. I love the grinning kitty because that is the cheesiest grin ever.
