“Looky what’s popping in the mountains right now,” writes Jimmie DeBergh of Harris Hollow, referring of course to these beautiful Pink Lady’s Slippers. “Since first discovering them years ago, I now have seven that greet me around the 10th [of May] every year. They are very delicate, and I dasn’t (Huck Finn) try to transplant, as I fear losing them. I understand there are also Yellow Lady’s Slippers around, but I haven’t found them.”
