Galveston’s wild orchids, Spring Ladies’ Tresses, are blooming in profusion right now along the feeder roads between 61st Street and Harborside Drive.

Once you see them, you can’t miss them. They're upright spires about one-foot high with small white blossoms spiraling up the stem. Best stand is in front of McCoy’s. Take a look before they get mowed down.

In addition enjoy the spread of yellow Coreopsis tickseed all over the Broadway Cemetery!

Thanks for your letter. Would not have known about this orchid Just today discovered nine bloom spikes in my yard here in Santa Fe. My lawn mower had been in the shop for three weeks and hadn't cut grass. E G Wiley
