Aye Calypso

Check out this gorgeous photo of Calypso Bulbosa at the "Botany Photo of the Day" site.

It brings back fond memories of my futile search for this elusive little beauty on the Bruce Peninsula during last year’s Orchid Festival. This year’s festival is from May 27 – 29th for those of you lucky enough to be in the vicinity of Tobermory, Ontario at that time.

It makes me want to break into song.

Aye Calypso the places you’ve been to,
the things that you’ve shown us,
the stories you tell…
