Getting there by girlie

Getting there

This is where my South African Pincushion Protea is up to today. Still a way to go but you can see the promise of a beautiful flower. I have seven of these in different stages of opening so my little bush should look pretty good in a few weeks' time. To see how this bloom has been developing, check out my pics on 25th and 28th August. They are slow to unravel but are beautiful to watch. Looks great with the magnifier and the little droplets are from an early-morning shower of rain.
very nicely done, good photo for your album
