I'm so blessed to live in this province. Even when the sky is a bit scowly in January.

Skywatch Friday: Wild Orchid at Cape St. Mary's
I'm still escaping from the drearies of an uncooperative winter, so this is my offering for this week's Skywatch Friday. Lighthouses and flowers...two of my favourite things in one place. This is Cape St. Mary's, between Digby and Yarmouth in southwestern Nova Scotia. I believe this is Platanthera psychodes, one of the purple fringed orchids. Or it could be P. grandiflora; the difference has to do with the size of the flowers, but I didn't have a measuring tape on me that day.It was one of those perfect summer days when there was no fog to be seen and the sun was lovely and everything was just right in the world, up on that hill overlooking the water.
