Proteas

These are some of my home grown proteas. Aren’t they elegant and fabulous? I am no florist. I just trimmed the stems a bit, put them in some water and they put on their own show! Proteas flower in autumn and grow quite happily in the Blue Mountains. They are native to Southern Africa but are cousins to Australia’s waratahs and banksias. What’s blooming in your garden?
