Lady slippers in the woods

Lady slippers are wild orchids that grow up here in New England and a few other places maybe. I believe they are a protected species. I happened on a healthy patch of pink and yellow lady slippers while out walking with the kids. I was able to photograph them in several stages from just poking up through last year’s fallen leaves to full bloom.

    Gorgeous…I’ll have to go looking for ours. And yes, they are most definitely a protected species.
