The Lost Images
We had been out for a walk in the woods with a friend. He had previously spotted some Yellow Lady’s Slipper flowers and took Sherri and me to see them. The Yellow Lady’s Slipper (Cypripedium parviflorum) blooms were less than an inch across. The plants may grow to 60cm tall. They are a member of the Lady’s Slipper Orchid family.
Although the flowers are wide spread, they are somewhat uncommon. Information regarding the Yellow Lady’s Slipper is contradictory. Differing sources report them to be common, and also endangered. All report that they do not transplant well and are best left in the wild, which is what we did.
The search for the elusive Yellow Lady’s Slipper included a lovely walk in the woods. The moist habitat ideal for orchids promotes lush foliage growth.
