Orchids are sometimes overlooked as they tend to be expensive and they are often interpreted into strictly tropical designs. I'm here to tell you: Please don't shy away from these beautiful blooms! The amazing thing about these flowers is that they give you so much impact with just a few stems. They can transform an arrangement of typical garden flowers into something truly unique, slightly exotic, and very dramatic.
This photo, snapped during my recent trip to the flower market in Los Angeles, shows my favorite variety, Phalaenopsis.
