    Oh my gosh... those are GORGEOUS!!!

    I have been toying with the idea of trying to put a Cypripedium patch in my garden for a while now. I live in the perfect climate for it, but apparently if you don't have just the right mix of nutrients in your desired spot, the plants (which are rather expensive) just won't come up. I also have a 6-year-old boy with a tendency to dig around in the yard and trample garden beds... I would be devastated if one day I found him turning up my Cypripedium bed with his ride-on excavator toy.

    Anyway, if I were to ever plant some, I'd want ones that look exactly like yours!! I love the pink and white color combination! Just gorgeous! I'm in love!!!
