I thought I’d do one more post – in colour – on the wonderful bunch of native flowers. It’s been wonderful to study them up closely and now their living days have come to an end…
Australian native flowers can still be pretty wonderful as dried flowers too – but this bunch has become quite dusty, so I’ll say good bye.
I want to say a big thanks to Julie and her Horticulture teacher, who together kindly helped me to work out my mystery flower. Thanks Julie..and thanks to your teacher!! :)
Turns out the mystery flower
is a Protea…. Edit: Ooops, got it wrong – It is a Leucodendron in the Proteaceae family! That’s right. Thanks Jules!!! ;) I wouldn’t have guessed that, but here it is – a true view of the flower in question, with no artistic alterations.
I’d guess that most of the large flowers in the bunch were in fact
Proteas…. nope that may not be right either…lol.. The assorted greenery, little flowers and pods were very interesting too.
Onto the One Four Challenge:
I’ll be posting the very first challenge post next Monday (3rd) – for our first week in November.
I hope you’re having some fun sorting out which image you’ll be working on for this coming month – if you’re joining us. I think I’m close to working it out.
For all info relating to the challenge – you can read the post here. All are welcome to join us – I think it should be fun and hopefully we’ll learn along the way too.
Have a fantastic weekend – whatever you’re doing – and a Happy Halloween to those who celebrate!!
