Arrangement # 17
The yellow bamboo culm ( stem) still fascinates me and this late afternoon I decided to cut its top section diagonally. I was thinking of the best candidate to fill up the empty bamboo vessel. While passing by the side of my chalet I saw a group of bleeding hearts flowers ( Clerondendron thomsonae) customarily lowering its sprays in late afternoon sun. "That's my candidate", my heart sang out. To enhance the emotion of heart felt passion I thought two bracts of red lipstick heliconia ( Heliconia stricta) will help accentuate and yet harmonise with the general emotional intensity of the composition. I thought the best title for the composition would be...yes, for sure....Bleeding Hearts.
