“Priceless” she said

Her eyes looked down. At her feet, a tiny orchid.

It had a purple throat in a lovely purple hoodie.

I tried to see what she was referring to

But my eyes saw nothing but her shoes

“How much were they?” I asked

She looked at me in stunned silence

Her face twisted in a questioning glare.

“You don’t buy them stupid!”

Clearly I was missing something.

“What?” I said in shocked reply.

“I am talking about the orchid.”

Her finger pointed to the tiny plant

“Oh!” I said “its beautiful, what is it?”

“Yes” she said

“Its stately”

“Oh, urgh” I grappled to understand as she explained the tiny plant’s name,

“What’s that?”

She answered but her eyes stayed fixed on the little flower. “The Stately Helmet Orchid, that’s its name.“

We both stared at its gorgeous colours, unique form and

agreed. It was indeed stately. Found here now in Tasmania’s winter, this darling of the dry eucalyptus forest, reigns supreme.
