My favorite flowers

When we moved here 4 years ago, I was so excited to see 2 lady slippers...then this year, I

looked around our yard again and counted 14!!!! Another wonderful sign of summer....

I first moved to NH in 3rd grade and our class had a wild flower contest. We had to collect and bring wild flowers to class. I picked a lady slipper and when I brought it to class I was told it was endangered and that it was illegal to pick a ladyslipper. I cried (sensitive child), but now I always look for these flowers. They are very rare and I believe they are a type of orchid.

That's awesome, Lorraine. I keep looking for lady slippers, but there are none around my house. Lady Slippers are beautiful.
