Ceramic Vase Home to Opera Singer

Just in case you were wondering how the ceramic piece from the previous post looks when it is filled with foliage, here’s a glimpse.  I ran into a few planting issues.  For example, planting the little succulents in the opening on the side of the vase was a little tricky, plus I had to cut away about half of the root base of the orchid because I mis-remembered the size of the vase opening.  So, I think this orchid might last about 24 hours, but isn’t she gorgeous now.  I refer to her as she, because I think she looks like she is singing in an opera!  Okay, so I added the eyes, but the singing mouth is totally real!  Can’t you just hear her?  “O sole mio-ooooo!”
Thank you Jules for my new Opera Stage Vase.  I plan to use it as a venue for many visiting orchid stars.  Bravo!

    I agree .. she DOES have a beard … but I thought that added to her personality. Ha.
