  1. Hello neighbor! Well, I see what you mean now about finding treasures. You found these in the wild?!

  2. Of course I did!

    There's a small nature reserve 25 km away from my hometown where you are able to find up to 14 different types of native orchids. Including the very rare lady's slipper / Frauenschuh [Cypripedum calceolus].
    So be on the look-out for the coming lady's slippers post... ;-)
