So the story is we sell proteas at the nursery and they always sell before the blooms open. But finally we had one that was about to open, and it did! but it was very cloudy the last few days and today it’s all rain. But yesterday I had the good luck of about 5 minutes of sunshine, and so I got the picture.
Here it is, so you better enjoy it.
This is the shy and reserved picture.
Protea neriifolia “Pink Ice”
It’s a beautiful upright shrub, even when not flowering. They are spectacular, but short-lived (10 years?).
And here’s the full glory picture.
