Monday/ proteas for mom

Protea is both the botanical name and common 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.

We brought my mom these proteas. They make great flower arrangements, and can even be left to dry out for a ‘permanent’ floral display. These are queen proteas, as far as I can tell from looking at pictures on-line.
