Lavender Orchid

Don (Spokane, United States) on 18 February 2011 in Plant & Nature.

An orchid display in my friend Donna's home. I always like shots in this special niche for its nice lighting making it a good background for showing flower arrangements. When she went to remove it from its protective wraping, the blossom broke off. She then created this pleasing arrangement that I felt compelled to shoot.

Une belle orchidée couleur lavande, je ne me lasse jamais de contempler ces fleurs parasites dans leur milieu naturel.
Il est vrai que, parfois, lorsque l'on met directement en pot une branche cassée, elle prend racine; attention à ne pas la noyer dans l'eau.

I like the gentle "S" of the one stem imposed against the other straight one. The delicate colors are lovely.
