Yellow Lady Slipper

Just in time for Mother's Day, the Yellow Lady Slipper flower that I purchased last spring burst forth its flower.  The bride was quite pleased, as was I.

Although the overall plant and its flower are fairly petite, it still was a stunning morning sight when I paused along my south flower bed after coming back from a windy run this weekend. 

I saw numerous Lady Slippers along the trails of the Massanutten 100 Miler; in fact, that is one of the vivid, enduring memories I have of that run back in 1998.
