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.
