We Love…. Orchids

Orchids – they take your breath away with their endless variety of colours, patterns and shapes. They are almost too perfect with their thick petals, and if you want to add  a structured look to your floral arrangements, orchids might just ‘fit the bill’. And did you know that the vanilla bean comes from an orchid? Amazing!

So here are a few orchids to whet your appetite with their sheer beauty…….
