My sister visited and we stayed the weekend in Banff National Park, sight-seeing and botanizing the various roadside sites... Calypso bulbosa was starting into bloom in the Lake Louise area at montane elevations - unfortunately, we didn't see the thousands of Calypso flowers that I promised my sister (the bloom was incredible a couple of years ago!) but we saw enough, nonetheless, to feel quite privileged! :) It was early for orchids, this year, though my sister also spotted a couple of round-leaved orchids (Orchis rotundifolia) at another spot - I'll have to ask her to send pix, as my camera had mysteriously quit working by that time (I think I have one bad battery, of the two). >:(
