Eshqua bog

Jane and I have made a couple of trips to Eshqua Bog, Hartland, VT this spring.The first on was on May 27. We had been hoping that the lady’s slippers would be in bloom, but it was too early. We did see other spring flowers.

Today’s trip was more fruitful. We not only saw two varieties of lady’s slippers,
