Friends gave us a bunch of these lovely protea flowers, native to South Africa. The complex details in this flower are amazing (you will need to view large), though to me the inset shot is more appealing.

Explored.

Thank you, Bev. The flower in the inset had not opened fully when I took these. Surprisingly, they aren't lasting as well as I'd have expected

are they the sort that you cut the stems "under" water in a bowl before
placing in a vase ... like you do a rose ? perhaps if you take them now,
cut about half and inch to an inch "under" water ... then place back in
the vase they might just lift ... sometimes this happens with tulips
and roses ... but they revive if you do this ... also ;-) an old newspaper,
wrap them up in this .. like you would a bouquet ... then stand them
in the vase just to rest awhile ..the water slowly rises up the paper
and it somehow it helps ... phew ... perhaps they are feeling the
heat ... or age ;-)

Thank you. As the come from Sth Africa, I imagine the climate in southern Portugal would suit them quite well - also many of our native plants.
