I've always loved these curious flowers but didn't know their name till today.

Hope you're enjoying Wimbledon-like conditions today.

Good work Mac, I wonder if it might have been stronger with a black background.

Like the details and colours in this Mac - cloudy and sunny here but heavy rain at the weekend which is a shame as off to the Yorkshire coast for the weekend.
Enjoy yours.
Regards Richard.

I was going for the "bathed in light" look this time, to highlight the delicate colours. Might try black again with my new blooms this weekend.
Cheers, Mac

What a gorgeous way of showing a Protea flower Mac . Just arrived home so tired . I watched the two Sisters Venus and Serena win at Wimbledon on the Ferry coming home . xx

Thanks for all your comments and well-wishes. A mix of watching Wimbledon and some much-needed sleep has made all the difference.
