Feathers in a flower…

Today I visited a new florist (Flowers in a Vase) and spent some time drooling over various stems and flowers.  I came away with a few different specimens which I spent the afternoon photographing with the macro lens 🙂  Here is the first, a type of Protea which is native to South Africa but apparently grows quite happily here in Australia.

    1. Thank you, it was an interesting flower, I hadn’t seen ones like this before. The shop was very cool, the owner quite happy to sell me single stems of bigger things 🙂

  1. This is gorgeous Lisa! Aren’t they a stunning flower?!
    I was given some proteas back in April… and I thought the same… ‘feathers’ 🙂
    Very beautiful capture!

    1. Thanks Robyn, glad you like it -they are stunning plants. I hadn’t seen this type before – Blushing Bride, they are about the size of a Hellebore flower if you don’t know this one, so reasonably small 🙂

      1. Oh wow, that is small! I am familiar with hellebores 🙂
        The one I was given was typical protea size… Still feathery though.
        Also love your B&W! Its all about the flower.

  2. It makes me want to explore deeper into the flower layers…good place to snuggle into for winter.

  3. Hi Lisa! I just looked through your last 5 posts and I really like your work! Those ears! and the weathered wood, the foggy silhouette, and this soft flower. All of them – great!
