The small Yellow Lady’s Slippers are blooming in the Wild Gardens.
This is the first orchid to bloom in our area. The ones in the wild gardens always bloom before the ones in the woods. These particular orchids were grown from tissue culture in a laboratory in Bovey Minnesota. Far Guy planted them in the wild gardens many years ago.
This is one of my favorite plants. So far there are six buds…but I think there are more to come.
It rained really hard on Saturday we got 1 1/2 inches of rain so we are officially out of the drought we were in. I have to mow the lawn every five days…seems like I barely get done and it needs mowing again.
