"Yellow Lady Slippers"

7 posts in this topic

Been awhile since I've posted......you know, fishing grin....spotted these little beautys near a small lake near by.....sometimes I really wonder which one of our native orchids are the nicest .....The "Showies" sure are neat!....so are the "pinks"......and then there's these guys.....I think these are the "large" yellow variety....about 18" to about 24" high.......there was probably 35 or so in a 10 yard area.....beautiful flowers I must say!...and a very sweet aroma to them!.....

Like those big ones, Jonny. We have the smaller variety up here - at least the small ones are the only ones I've found. Especially like the slipper with the ferns!

I've never seen the smaller ones Ken.....so many varietys of these slippers!.....was out this morning and found some "pinks" down in the "bog" (Owl Avenue)....seems to be a good area for the pink slippers to grow...saw them in that area last year also....

These are lovely - I particularly like the pink with the birch log behind it in the second set. Thanks for sharing!
