I discovered these yesterday. It’s the first time I’ve ever found them growing in our woods. They’re a rare find.
Prince Edward Island adopted the lady’s slipper as its floral emblem in 1947. The flower gets its name from its petals, which are shaped like a woman’s shoe. It grows in the cool shade of the forest and it blooms in the springtime.
What is the floral emblem of your province or state?
I’m off to town today. The library is calling my name!
Have a wonderful day my friends.
