    I have never seen a lady slipper, at first I thought it was columbine. I like the holes you added to to leaves, very realistic.

    Looks good Charlie. I have started concentrating more on habitat with my carvings. I have purchased the necessary tubing, foil and equipment to start working in brass. I will start to practice with it when I finish my current project. Where will the Sept show be? Donna Thomas is planning to attend and I hope to meet her there also.

    Nomad, the leaves and petals are brass, the pod is tupelo, stem is hardened brass rod.

    Looks like the "real deal" to me Charlie. Can't say as I've seen a yellow one, but as Scotia Carver says ; we've got tons of pink ones up here.

    Thanks, I need all the smartening up I can get! I'll tell you what is funny my wife has one that has been sitting on the kitchen table for at least three years now. It had a blossom on it when I first got for her, but hasn't bloomed since, Now I know what to look forward to···Da

    I love orchids! That is a wonderful slipper. The curl in those lateral petals is awesome. Are they wood or something else?

    it is a orchid,g rows among trees and sometimes in meadows. Years ago there were fields of the pink version in Maine . we have yellow here in Arkansas. it takes 10 years to mature to blooming and there has to be a special fungus growing in the leave cover for it to grow and thrive. Thanks for the comment.

    Not familiar with what you're carving, a flower I believe; however, it is a fine job of carving, like the detail.
