On advice from Floridagirl I am entering this in the monthly flower arrangements theme and linking to Noelles blog. I hope you enjoy the tropical flowers from my corner of the world! Check out the arrangements on her blog! http://www.azplantlady.com/
On the way home from work yesterday I saw a bucket of torch ginger flowers for sale - 1.00 each. I had been toying with the idea of cutitng my heleconia and bringing it inside. I have some friends coming for tea and not everyone is so keen on traipsing down to the back corner to see my flower. I have a very tall vase and thought these would be good in the vase alongside it. I forgot that the vase has quite a narrow neck, and anyway once I put it into the vase I realised that it looked best just on its own. I hope the flower contiues to unfurl now that it has been cut.
