Tiny orchids

When I crouched down to take a photo of these small flowers growing in the dry sandy soil beside the forest path I was blown away to discover that they were tiny orchards.

Words to walk with:
From Helmet Orchid by Douglas Stewart
"Oh such a tiny colony
Set among all eternity
Where the great bloodwoods stand!"
