Pink Lady's Slipper

A few weeks ago my husband said he'd found a patch of wild orchids near a small pond hidden in the woods. Not being much of a flower or plant person, I said, "oh that's nice," and went on with whatever I was doing.

Then yesterday he took me on a hike to see the pink lady's slippers for myself. They are indeed unique (click pic to enlarge).

Hey, get yer mind outta da gutter! It's a lady's pink slipper!

If you happen upon an orchid, don't touch it. They are fragile things. And if the flower dies, the plant itself will die.

  1. This is nice. There is a spot by me that has about 16,000 of these. No, they are Showy lady's Slippers.
