Aren't these Cymbidium orchids just gorgeous.
They look like little creatures from a magical kingdom!
I can see a little nose on top of an open mouth with a tongue poking out.
I used green willow - cut from my willow arch.
I took loads and it was snapped up by lots of arrangers.
The design is for a minimalist modern home
which it totally the opposite of mine
I just had to add some leaves to soften the harshness of the breeze block
I have to say that it does not suit my home at all.
But I spent a great couple of hours, in good company, and learnt plant manipulation amongst other things. It was such a change of style for me - plants suspended in tubes.
I can picture a Christmas arrangement like this - with painted red canes, entwined with ivy, and perhaps the breeze block being covered with holly and baubles - ideal for my little cold porch.
