Eshqua Bog 6/29

After this morning’s rain, Jane and I went to Eshqua Bog Natural Area, Hartland, VT, co-owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy of Vermont and The New England Wildflower Society.

They have built a boardwalk over the bog, making it handicapped accessible.

Hundreds of showy lady slippers were in bloom, a little past peak but still beautiful!

Next year we will have to go earlier so we can see yellow lady slippers.
