As I approached the boardwalk, my eyes caught a glimpse of what appeared to be a pink blanket gently covering the ground. I was dazzled by the subtle beauty of the flowering orchids and other plants. Orchids are one of the most popular attractions at the Cranberry Glades for people with an interest in wildflowers, At least eight spectes flourish there. They are distinguish- able by their specialized three-pet- aled flowers. The two side or lateral petals usually form the wings of the flower, while the central third petal forms the "tip.' Among my favorites are the rose pogonia or snake mouth orchid and the grass pink orchid. The rose po- gonia usually has one flower. They are pink in color and 1 to 1-1/2 inches across. The lip is fringed along the bottom with yellow hairs and is sometimes called the beard flower. The grass pink orchids are typi- cally a deeper pink than the rose pogonias and usually have several flowers on a stem. These orchids bloom concurrently in the open bog areas during the last part of June and the first week or two of July. To help you identify these and other glades flowers, the staff of the Cran- berry Mountain Visitor Center con- ducts tours each Saturday and Sun- day at 2 p.m. an additional tour at 11 a.m. is offered on Sundays dur- ing the orchid season. For more in- formation, contact the visitor center at 653-4826. Whad You're Not A Bus Driver? Suzie's team is on its 'ay to the state championship finals, if only they could get a ride.
