One of my orchids, Laelia flava, a Brazilian rock-growing species, put out four of these beautiful little blooms this year (approx. life size), in a cluster at the end of a very long spike. When the plant was ready to stop flowering, each little bloom simply fell off and stayed almost perfect for a whole day off the plant. So of course I had to paint one.
