About art assemblage made out of dead orchid plant, still potted in Halloween witch's black plastic kettle

The bombshell plant entry can be photographed at this Tuesday's Kaimuki Orchid Society's monthly meeting at the Kaimuki District Park events building.  Meeting starts up at 6:30pm
Being a chicken at heart, I asked my wife if she'd carry it into the meeting room and put it on the display table.  She replied, "Hell no, it'd be too embarrassing!  Do your own dirty work."
By the way, mahalo for the published story (2013) about my daughter Rochelle, then a ballet student at Indiana University.  She posed in my mother-in-law's flower garden in Volcano- who dislikes orchid plants as "they die too easily."  Rochelle beat the odds (2 out that year's 10 graduates) and now dances professionally with a dance company in LA.
Much aloha,


(hoping for a positive response)
