Minnesota's State Flower

The Lady Slipper is the Minnesota State Flower.

Very pretty and pretty elusive.

I have looked for years for one.

Last year I came across a small bunch of them.

I managed to snap a few photo's in the poor light.

I hope to get back in that place and find them in full bloom again this year.

 

Being the state flower, it is ILLEGAL to pick or dig up.

 

So when and if you are lucky enough to see one, don't even touch.

Just enjoy the beauty!
