    Default Cymbidiums for Phillip C.'s Funeral

    I know these are supposed to be orchids in bloom on the actual plant, but I couldn't think of where else to post these. This is an arrangement I made with cyms from the funeral arrangement. I think Phillip would have really liked the smaller arrangements better than the huge sprays they had at the funeral home. I guess each has its place. I apologize for not following forum protocol on this, but I don't have the brainpower to work these things out right now.

    Thanks, all.

    Maura, that is lovely, and I'm sure Phillip approves. Who else counts? Thank you for sharing - we all miss Phillip.

    Maura - they are lovely - by the way you're allowed to not have brainpower right now, it really is a matter of just putting one foot in front the other and not falling down.

    Beautiful arrangement, Maura. I remember Phillip always liked white orchids and he would have loved that cym.
