Greenhood

Near the tiny orchids in yesterday's post, I was thrilled to discover this little greenhood orchid. Apparently greenhoods are also known as helmet orchids -- I didn't know that when I selected yesterday's poem.

Words to walk with:

"Nodding greenhoods from the stone
Like contemplation grow:"
