    When I’m moving back home in a couple years, they are coming with me along 4 other plants. There is one that’s called lady slippers. The flower really looks like a close slipper. Yellow. They grow wild along the provincial n federal parks. You cannot take any or it’s a big ticket n some jail time. Go figure. My 94yr young neighbor, her son use to work for federal police n brought one for her mom way back. A couple years ago she gave me a small one. I’ll take pictures of it when they bloom and post them. Last year when I cross Canada, in Saskatchewan my neighboring province, along a certain small area had miniature sunflowers growing along the highway like 1-2 feet high. I sprinkle the seeds this spring. Seedlings are coming out. Can’t wait to see them. They’re coming with me too.

    Ah, I looked it up and they actually grow wild in Sweden too but are rare (and under special protection here too)! Looking forward to photos!
