Theme Thursday - Flowers...one of my favorite plants...orchids....


Hi Everyone....

The prompt over at Theme Thursday this week is "flowers" and one of my favorite plants is the orchid...I mainly grow these from the Phalaenopsis family...and one of my favorite is the Sogo Yukidian...the colours are amazing and they are super easy to maintain...and who doesn't love a plant that has flowers for 9 months out of the year....mine blooms every January and lasts till October....and all it needs is some soakings in water once and a while...

This piece is all about the Sogo Yukidian....it's colours...it's textures...

I also thought my flower art stamps are perfect for the theme!!!

Have a wonderful Thursday!!!

Lovely. I was given an orchid nearly four years ago by my old boss. It has flowered pretty much non-stop ever since. As soon as one stalk of flowers dies off, then another begins to grow to take its place and the flowers last for months!
