Protea : Festival of Flowers



Proteas attracted the attention of botanists visiting the Cape of Good Hope in the 17th century. Many species were introduced to Europe in the 18th century, enjoying a unique popularity at the time amongst botanists.

  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! 🙂
