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.

Perfect point of focus here. Interesting look to the flower as well. Very nice.
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 🙂
Which makes you a lokely repeat customer. Nice.
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!
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 🙂
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.
It makes me want to explore deeper into the flower layers…good place to snuggle into for winter.
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!
Thank you and also for visiting and taking time to comment 🙂
