wrapped orchid / by Georgia Dorey

about petals and paper.

I love looking at the orchids for sale in Japan. Many plants are planted together in the same pot and then individually wrapped in chiffon paper coverings. Orchids are not native to Japan but they are given as gifts to new businesses. They are chosen because they are the only flower that is available all year round in the same shape and size.

I prefer them with the coverings on. #inpraiseofthefold #蘭
