ORCHID – AFRICANA MYSTERIA

I discovered this pretty bloom on a landfill site, which was obviously not it’s natural habitat. It was probably someone’s gift which had been discarded, together with other items of garbage, to be destroyed. But, an inbuilt desire to glorify its maker, inspired it to send out roots, one last time, feverishly hunting out the most nourishing bits of moist soil to once more bring forth its mauve petals to honor the priceless gift of life.

  1. Thank you, Gary, I thought the color was nice too. Unfortunately, the flower lasted only a few months but it was an absolute pleasure to have around. I don’t know what it was, because there are so many varieties, I just gave it that name because it was found in Alberton South Africa, where I live. Thanks again for commenting. Regards, Andre’
