A BOUQUET FOR FAR SIDE

     Far Side from Far side of Fifty https://farsideoffifty.blogspot.com/and her family are going through a stressful time right now. Far Guy is slated for a lung transplant.

     I know the yellow lady slipper is one of far Sides favorite flowers so here's a bouquet by photo. I also have one of Far side's carved yellow lady slippers which I won in a draw.

  18. These are so exotic. I feel I have won the lottery when I run across something like this in the woods. Our little bit of tropical paradise. I am so sorry about your friend and hoping the stress does not make them all ill.
