Cypripedium acaule, or the pink lady’s slipper.

Just 50 feet from my house is this pink lady’s slipper, one of two orchid species that grow right next to my house. I took this picture yesterday.
The cypripedium acaule is native to our region but you will not find any on your lawn. Keeping your surrounding s natural produces this wonder of nature’s beauty and splendor and keeps the lake clean.

Even if you do not live on a lake, you can help keep it clean. One of the easiest ways is to use lake-friendly, phosphorus-free fertilizer for your turfgrass. Hamilton Reservoir and Lake Siog and all other downstream water bodies will appreciate it.
When too much phosphorus enters the lake, algae and weed growth become uncontrollable. Using a lake-friendly, phosphorus-free lawn fertilizer will help protect the lake and will not compromise your lawn’s appearance.
