Flowers of the Eastern Cape #22 - Proteas

The Eastern Cape is alive with flowers at the moment and a trip to the van Staden's Wild Flower Reserve is well worth the visit.

This Protea Eximia is looking quite spectacular with the back lighting. 

The Pincushion protea (Leucospermum cuneiforme) is putting on a magnificent display.

Such a gorgeous and exotic looking flower! It is a favourite with florists here in Edmonton!

The Proteas at the Van Stadens Wildflower Reserve is stunning at the moment.

Something like that would only grow inside our houses. One year I visited Singapore, and I was surprised how many of my house plants grew on the side of the road, lol. Anna :)
