There are rattlesnakes out there….Downy Rattlesnake Plantain that is! Yep, our next orchid has just started to bloom. There are many flower stalks out there this year, but we have an especially nice “forest” of flower stalks marked along the Shelter Trail. Like many of our native orchids this one is a “get up close and personal” kind of flower. Overall though, this particular plant is very attractive.

Also of note is the buzzing, humming, and fluttering activity taking place at the bee balm in the butterfly garden. Here is a pic of one of the visitors.

Don’t forget the next fern walk is this Sunday at 1:00pm!
