Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Saturday Surprise

Over the weekend I noticed that my lady's slipper that I bought last year was up and flowering. I remember taking note a few weeks ago that it had started to push foliage up, and wondered if it would flower. It's Cypripedium formosanum, and I bought it last spring from Keeping It Green Nursery in Stanwood, WA. It's not one of the rarest or hardest to grow, but I'm still delighted by its elegance.
