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!
