I received these beautiful Proteas (our national flower) on Mothers day from my daughter.
I think they are so pretty, they will last for weeks on end, as they have hardy stems they do not rot in the water. Later I will dry them and keep them, as they dry very well.
This was one of the many gifts I received for Mothers Day. I adore Giraffes, and have a whole collection already. This one I received from my daughter, it is about a metre high, and made from wire and glass beads. Quite heavy!
It got a very special little place in the dining room!
