Last Monday I noticed that our Yellow Lady’s Slippers were blooming. It happened so fast, but right on time. We had 16 blooms this year..they were awesome!
There are 42 different species of Orchids in Minnesota. I have seen three..maybe four..perhaps even five. I say maybe because I have seen a much smaller yellow lady slipper on several occasions. I think that there may be about three yellow varieties. The yellow ones along our back road are not even up yet, they will bloom around Father’s Day, so I think they are a totally different variety too.
Far Guy, Chance and I took off for the Wildlife Refuge. It is one of my favorite places. I knew where to look for the Lady Slippers.
These were all shy.
These were just as beautiful as can be. It was a wonderful afternoon spent in the refuge, a cemetery and a antique shop..my favorite kind of day:)
