Spider Lily

Arrangement # 72
My house garden in Kuching is still in its infancy since we decided to 'look west' .  While trying to make my pick for the day, I was pleasantly surprised to see a bed of spider lily ( Hymenocaullis caribaea) bearing a couple of flowers. I just took one stalk thinking to make a simple,fast and elegant composition.
To match its long stalk and white flowers, I chose the contrasting colours of the brownish bracts of calathea ( Calathea lutea) and stopped at that. Not to complicate things further.
Glad to call today's composition ....In Contrasting Mood.
