In Parrot- like Fashion

Arrangement # 110
A collection of three varieties of the parrot flower ( Heliconia psittacorum) makes today 's presentation.  The bracts are of various colours - orange, deep yellow to light golden yellow and one particular variety  much to my liking has pastel pink bracts with orange flowers and green tips. The stems of the inflorescence are wrapped in Red Ti leaves ( cordyline terminalis) to make the presentation neat and have red colours reflect in the vase.  The bright red petals of the Red Ginger ( Alpinia purpurata) adds vibrancy and a small statement to the display.  Thinking of what people say about learning things by mere copying or blind following, I would like to name this composition as ... Parrot like Fashion.
