Caption: Is there any wonder this name is given to this tiny orchid? This grows wild in my meadow, but this particular specimen I transplanted to my garden two years ago. It seems to be doing fine!

Thank you for looking and commenting, Shirley! Each summer I leave a portion of the meadow unmowed just so these little things can bloom and set seed, but every year there are fewer of them anyway. As I said, this particular one is in my rock garden.

They are pretty and the spiraling is so
unusual, isn't it? Looks quite dainty.
Pretty shot! Thank you for sharing.

Oh, they ARE, Dianne! I took this with my macro lens; each flower is about the size of a grain of rice. Thanks for commenting!
