During the wildflower season, we occasionally get dispatches from Kelly Povo and Phyllis Root, authors of "Searching for Minnesota's Native Wildflowers."

This week, they went hunting for wild orchids — specifically, a beautiful white flower called the showy orchid.

They found them in abundance at French Regional Park in Plymouth.
