March of the Flowers

Our backyard is awash in flowers. That seems to happen whenever we get a "normal" amount of rainfall from October through February. That doesn't always happen; but it did this year.

We normally have tons of California Poppies and Bachelor's Buttons. This year, we have few of those for some reason, but we do have tons of African Daisies. Those are great.

We also have an assortment of flowers that we cannot identify. Most are small, like the one in the photograph (click to enlarge). I have no idea what this is, but we get them every wet year. For the first time I noticed the tiny flower -- about half an inch tall. It looks like a little orchid! Do you know what kind of flower this is? I would love to know.
