Between the leaves

This SWEET shot comes from the aforementioned biologist Ally Via, a teacher I used to work with at Charlestown High School in Boston. (Big thanks to Amy P. for connecting us!) Turns out Ally also takes beautiful photos that she posts in “Backyard Biology” albums on FB. (And generously shares with lucky friends.)

These are chives… and unlike the saucy/obscene plant porn I’ve posted thus far, I’d say these two are in a long-term committed relationship. It’s a beautiful thing, y’know.

Ally shot this one too. It’s a Lady Slipper. And yes, I too think it’s pretty darn sexy.

I read online the pink and white Lady Slipper, an orchid, is the Minnesota state flower — oh, those sexy Scandinavians!

Apparently it can take as long as 16 years to produce its first flowers. No wonder it’s protected by state law in the Land of Prince.

They grow along the shores of Lake Minnetonka.
