Protea on Maui Hawaii #3

From the same general family as the Silver Oak tree, proteas are giant, solid, almost unnaturally beautiful flowers that originated in South Africa. Today, their unique appearance and robust character have made protea a popular gift flower. There are various Protea Farms on UpCountry Maui, like Maui’s Upcountry Protea Farm and Sunrise Protea Farm. By the way, I have one more Protea photo here, which I posted a while ago.

I took these photos back in December and wanted to share these for my Weekly Winners but didn’t get a chance then.  So I am doing it now – I hope that ok with Lotus.  For more Weekly Winner Photos, visit Sarcastic Mom Blog and click the links.

  1. WOW — beautiful and unique. They remind me a little bit of a Sunflower… only much prettier.
