Birthday present

Sunday was my 52nd birthday. So I decided to do a 52 furlong hike (I had to search several ancient units until I found one in which 52 of the unit was a reasonable hike. 52 stadia would also have been about right).

On that hike I happened to see a rare orchid in bloom.

    Furlongs are commonly used to measure distances in horse races. Also, an acre is the area of a rectangle one chain by one furlong.
