  1. Wow, it’s been a very long time since I heard that song!
    Brings back a lot of memories.
    I have some of these exquisite Proteas in my garden too.

    • While I was walking Trompie this afternoon I kept on thinking about the protea I photographed and suddenly I remembered Suikerbossie- and there you are! 🙂
