I’m in love.
Yesterday Eric gave me such a divine birthday gift, an Asian Lady Slipper.
It has to be one of the most beautiful orchids I’ve ever seen and I’m so excited that it’s mine.

I’m familiar with the North American Lady Slipper from growing up in Maine. We where always told that they are an endangered species and to never pick a Lady Slipper that you came across in the woods. I remember as a child finding the Lady Slipper growing wild and getting so excited, they give me such a sense of hope and still today put a smile on my face.

Thank you Eric!
