A slipper made for a Queen

Here again is the Cyprigedium calceolus (Yellow Lady Slipper) I posted this a few days ago, but now it has opened. This little guy is a show stopper. There is more about it in the previous post.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Andrea you are always so kind, Thank-you for the encouragement.

  3. sonny, this is so delicate and quaint...really really fit for a princess, eh?
    i am waiting for you to post those jack-in-the-pulpits that you promised me boy!..love terry

  4. Hi Reg, It's been a while since I've visited you, I've missed a lot! I have a lady slipper in my flower bed which used to grow on the side of a road near here. It is white, and beautiful, and I saved it from the weed spray truck.
    Two years ago it was chomped by a deer, I thought I'd lost it! But it had a few blooms last year and I think there will be more this. I didn't know they were toxic, and apparently the deer didn't, either!

  5. Wow nice to see that you saved that great plant. Lady Slippers are a tricky plant. They never fallow the rules that we write about them. I had no idea that they where poisons either until I read a bit about them.

  6. I forgot to mention it is nice top see you back here for a visit
