Aleksandr says:
‘Why do people think that only a single flower or a bouquet can be beautiful? Even the separate parts of a flower, set in the correct combination, can form an interesting picture.  A.P. Chekhov said: “Everything should be beautiful in a person: the face, the clothes, the soul, and the thoughts”. For me, the same general idea applies to flowers. For example, my favourite parrot flowers are amazingly beautiful as they are: bright, vivid, cheerful and diverse; but their stamens, taken separately, deserve just as much attention. Resembling dancing matches, they serve as an ideal complement to the flower.’
