“Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light”, Theodore Roethke
The understated beauty of the cascading Rock Lily orchid (Dendrobium speciosum) reminds me of the subtlety of our inner beauty. One that underpins the thoughts that we share and the gifts that we give. A smile. A soft gentle touch. Kind words to lift the heart. The unspoken words that shine through our actions.
