I have always been fascinated by the fading phase of a flower’s life, and this Coelogyne cristata  is no different. While blossom is easy for everyone to appreciate and enjoy, withered flowers seldom get that kind of attention. Time is indeed ruthless in cutting down and destroying beauty; however, for a patient observer, an ageing plant can reveal a delicate, poignant and often unexpected beauty.


Commended - Monochrome
