This is a timelapse video of my water color and ink sketches of the Showy Lady’s Slipper, (Cypripedium reginae), the Minnesota State Flower since 1925. This protected wildflower may not be dug, cut, plucked, pulled or gathered, resulting in a misdemeanor and fine or imprisonment.
This flower was found near a swamp, with about five flowers in bloom and one or more to open. The other name for this flower is the Moccasin Flower as it is shaped like tiny moccasin slippers.
