my favourite flower

I am going to talk about some of my favourite flowers.

One flower that I really like is the Bird of Paradise, also known by it's technical name, Strelitzia. This flower is native in South Africa. I really like this flower because It's quite stunning to look at. It has a very tropical colour palette, with deep blues, and rich yellows and oranges. It also has very nice sharp angles, giving it a great aesthetic, which would blend in well with modern trends.



I also really like this flower because it was in a video game that I cannot remember. But it does make me think of the video game 'Viva Pinata' produced by the company 'Rare'. Viva Pinata also shows off a very Exotic colour palette, with the animals (called Pinatas in the game). In Viva Pinata you are given a garden, and in many ways it is similar to Harvest Moon. You must clear your garden of debris and unappealing structures. You must cultivate it, and landscape it, in such a way that the Pinatas are attracted, and so that they choose to come live in your garden



Watch out though! The evil Pinatas will try to come into the garden and destroy your Pinatas, to eat the candy inside! It is a fun game, that can become difficult as you need to learn to manage many different aspects of the garden, in order to attract the legendary Dragonache!





My other favourite flower would be the Orchid. I think the Orchid is a great counter to the Bird of Paradise. Where the latter is angular and sharp and very demanding in its appearance, the Orchid is elegant, traditional, and rounded. It is much more unassuming, whilst still showing off a sophisticated type of grace.



Although there are many colours of the Orchid, I prefer the Blue orchid. The Blue is very rich and deep, almost more towards the Indigo end of the colour spectrum. It has a type of glow about it, and when grouped with other Blue Orchid's, becomes a floral masterpiece.





What are some of your favourite flowers?

Lilies, African violets, petunias, snap dragons, and butterfly bushes are my favorites.

If there was rep here, I would give it to you.

Orchids are beautiful, but are bitch to keep alive.

I love lilacs. I think they smell really nice too.
