These pink Lady Slippers were blooming on the side of the road and were so pretty. I love the shape of their flower…. like a little slipper.
Lady Slippers have a pink pouch and 4 reddish brown twisted petals atop a single stalk. The flowers that are 1 and 1/2′ to 2 and 1/2″ and bloom in May and June in the woodlands.
“Some species of lady slipper are listed as endangered or threatened in New England. Others, like the common Pink Lady’s Slipper, are listed as “special concern” under the Native Plant Protection Act.”
So pretty, don’t you think?
