The Minnesota State Flower is an orchid called the Showy Lady’s Slipper or Cypripedium reginae. Of course I knew where to find just a few.
These are on the west side of Shell Lake.
There are many along other roads where it is either dusty or they have mowed them off already, some are in such traffic heavy areas taking photos is out of the question.
Where we were last evening only one car came speeding by.
Update on the White Lady’s Slipper that Jo and I found a few years ago. The deer have eaten them off again.
Buggers anyway. The white ones grow a bit taller than the Showy Lady’s Slippers and they must be real tasty.
Far Guy had a Neurologist appointment in Fargo yesterday, we got up early to go and were home by 11 AM. I made us eggs ( farm fresh from friends of my other baby brother) and bacon after I cleaned up the kitchen I had a four hour nap.
The appointment went fine…although some equilibrium problems were noticed hopefully it is from his “crud” or some fluid on his ears.
