Bambo culm compositions - 2

My attempt today is to combine two species of heliconia inside a yellow bamboo culm. The upright orangy-red heliconia psittacorum and the cascading heliconia sassy pink. To balance the two contrasting movements I threw in four leaves of the pinkish caladium hybrid with green edges.
Now I am thinking of a beautiful young maiden, slender in form and her pink face blushes as she is teased.
The red hibiscus add much vigour and gushes of blood as she put on the sweetest smile a man will die for.
Arrangement # 81

For such a memorable moment in the life of the young maiden, I dedicate this composition to ....Blushing Maiden.
