Celebrate Summer with Minnesota's State Flower

A quick trip out to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum included an unexpected treat: Minnesota's state flower, the showy lady's slipper (cypripedium reginae), in bloom. 
These are rarely seen gems in the wild, so it was great to see big clumps of them in bloom at the arboretum.

They will still be blooming for a few more days (and there may be some in bloom at the Eloise Butler Wildflower Gardens), but you need to act fast if you want to see them this year.
