The Remains of Holy Week

The Remains of Holy Week

Well, it seems like the color purple will be with us for a while longer. The flowers above are known colloquially as Flores de papel (paper flowers) because their petals are so dried that they look like if they were made from paper. I looked up the flower in the Guateflora book, but I did not find it there, so I can not help you with scientific name. Perhaps, some of the other visitors know its scientific name and can share it with us, anyone?

    Simply beautiful. I’ve never seen flowers used in this manner. I also enjoy the architectural details presented here.
