Seen and photographed along the Hurricane Ridge Road, this is another of the many native orchids and wildflowers we found in Olympic National Park. It's botanical name is Platanthera dilatata var. dilatata.
Every night during the Olympics there is a fireworks show in the Yaletown area of Vancouver as part of the festivities there. If Canada has won gold that day, then there are gold fireworks that are part of the display.
This was taken in the Devonian Botanic Gardens, in Devon, Alberta, near Edmonton. We have a daughter, son-in-law and cute little granddaughter in that area and this is one of our favorite places when we visit them.
