All these pictures were taken today, Wednesday, May 23, 2018 — some in the morning, the others in the evening. Same place. A now heavily overgrown, and somewhat steep, West-facing bank about 200-yards from our house. I discovered that it is a haven for Lady Slippers a few years ago. So now I gingerly check every Spring. So the first signs about a week ago. Today they are at their peak. At least 7 or 8 flowers across multiple plants. There could be more. I don’t like to encroach.
Never heard of her until earlier today. I went to have a quick look at CNBC and she was being interviewed. See below:
I like Elon Musk and SpaceX and as such stopped for a second to listen. She was impressive. I had not realized that SpaceX had a female President. Then I saw her name. Wow. ‘Shotwell’. What a great name for somebody heading a rocket company. You sure hope they shot well.
Given my fascination with names I had to look it up. Alas it is not a name that was given to archers. Shame that. They think it comes from a place name.
Never mind. Great name for the President of SpaceX. I hope she continues to shoot those rockets well
