Pink lady’s slipper

Pink lady's slipperMagnificent!  And right on time . . . the pink lady’s slippers are blooming.  This year I found two of these delightful flowers.  Last year I could only find one.

Pink lady's slipperWhen bending close to the flower and getting your nose right into its slipper, you can smell the lovely fragrance.  I am always intrigued by the amazing intricacy and delicacy of this flower.
