Saturday/ proteas for mom

I found these proteas for sale when I was out at the mall on Saturday.  Protea is both the botanical name and the common-use name for a large group of flowers found in the Cape Town area and on the slopes of Table Mountain.  They are named after the Greek god Proteus (who could change his form at will), because they have such a wide variety of forms.

These proteas are probably Protea compacta.
