365 Days of Ikebana-Day 138

Phalaenopsis orchids are some of the most beautiful, delicate flowers around. I had several stems to use today, and I started working with the stems trying to mass them. They look great together in a vase, but a little bit harder to try show their sleek lines and try to have mass at the same time. So I ditched that plan after several clumsy attempts. I decided to try one stem and a single colored/dried monstera leaf. For me it worked, showing the elegant blooms of just one stem. I still have the others to try a massed design again this weekend.
