Dream of Orchids

Emerging from a kaleidoscopic dream, whimsical and acrobatic flowers storm the tops of large tropical trees with their nimble lianas. The diversity of the elusive orchid is fascinating: the pearly Phalaenopsis deploys its delicate butterfly petals while the Cattleya bursts like a multi-coloured, baroque firework. Queen of illusions, the orchid’s colourful pattern can take on the appearance of a psychedelic panther or hint at a vanitas painting. Even the bees that revel in its precious nectar have donned ceremonial attire.
