Lady's Slipper

Cypripedium acaule or Pink Lady's Slipper orchid, is a seasonal beauty. I usually think of them as wetland plants, but this one was growing in sandy soil on a bluff above the Pere Marquette river. Most wild orchids are protected in Michigan.

Wonderful photos!! I love my woods too!! But being your an economist what is your $ passion? I am trying to parent children who think money comes out of no where?
Not how they were raised and we are so discouraged by their willingness to live so close to the edge or jumping off the cliff!!!
