Dazzlingly beautiful!! Love the colours you have chosen....(or chosen to highlight) - purple and orange and that green is brilliant. And what a wonderful pattern...i like the way you have emphasised the pattern with that colour contrast too! Thank you for sharing it on Mandarin Orange Monday:)

Such an unusual plant! It's beautiful. I can see where it might entice a young one to play with it and parents have to be vigilant if one is in their home.
