Photo of the Week - Showy Lady's-slipper

Barbara Johnson took this photo of showy lady’s-slippers in full bloom a couple of weeks ago. The picture was taken near Lake Miltona along the roadside. Lady’s-slippers are also abundant this year in many of the woods in the area. The showy lady’s-slipper is the Minnesota state flower.
