Beauty can be found even in the most unlikely of places, this week’s recipe features stunning specimens of Japanese orchids sent against a swamp like backdrop to enhance the natural beauty they possess. A bed of green dianthus (38455) and green preserved Spanish moss (S17519) hosts outcroppings of galax leaves (G1059) and honey myrtle (G1521) all nestled in a matte black planter (S25606). To add another layer of texture, orange kangaroo paw (39981) and pennycress (38823) were added in conjunction with walking sticks (47592) to add drama and height.
Stunningly vibrant and elegantly long Santa Barbara cattleya orchids from Japan (58818) steal the show with their bright colors and unique shapes. The crown jewel however is a large faced pink cattleya orchid (58820), also from Japan, placed in the lower left corner to anchor your eye in the design. This week’s recipe teaches us to look past the dreary and the mundane and really appreciate earth’s natural beauty.
