And to think we left empty handed......😂 flowers to me, are a gift that keeps on giving. I learned that many in the proteacea are much like Cali natives, in that cool weather is more conducive to growth/rooting especially when propagating, cuttings and seeds. Let’s hope some of the long stems will be fruitful and yield a plant or few! 😬 #protea#resendizbrothers#slowflowers#americangrownflowers#jcbotanicaldesigns
And the rowdy hand painted kookaburra art continues - this is Ziggy.
In other news I've issued a screen free day just to let the kids get bored and see what they can come up with... they have decided to play schools and turn the WHOLE house into a giant school 'cubby' - yep every sheet, cushion and chair is being used.
I just heard Bella send H to the principals office.
This could only end well 😂
South Africa's national flower, the Protea is a perfect example of the country itself, sometimes harsh with little rain and resources like Cape Town's current water shortage crisis, however some of the most beautiful things from nature are created thru it's struggle to survive. Mother nature always has it's way and the plant that produces this flower has even learned how to be fire proof in an area that is constantly hit with forest fires. This flower is a perfect example of nothing great comes easy, that hard work and struggle can pay off. 🌹
She spent her days allowing herself to grow, to transform and have courage. She knew that in order for her to go through life and succeed then she must take chances and be daring. Be like her. Be like the PROTEA. SHOP prints now at www.yukulart.com
