Ah, the wonders of nature!
Here’s a lovely flower I spotted in the woods behind my house.
Apparently it’s called a lady slipper orchid. This particular variation isn’t endangered, but some species are (and some are poisonous), so I left it alone.
A few of the websites I browsed linked the plant to Aphrodite, because it’s “beautiful.”
I think by “beautiful” they meant “sexually suggestive…”
And thanks to Minnesota Wildflowers Info for saying what we’re all thinking: “Some have called Stemless Lady’s-slipper the scrotum flower.”
That’s right. Take a walk in the Northern woods and find a lovely pink scrotum.
