  5. Hi Shirley,
    Those flowers are called Laucadendron Wilson's wonder (discolor "Pom Pom"). They are kind of proteas.

  6. These are from your garden! WOW! Amazing! Thank you for sharing them for Fresh-Cut Friday! This is a beautiful post! :)


  7. Nothing more beautiful than an Irish Belleek vase to hold spring flowers.

    I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

    Thank you.
    Have a beautiful PS weekend ~

  8. Wish I had a garden with flowers like that. Simply beautiful.

  11. Komali,

    Came over from Colours Dekor. Have fallen in love with your blog. You work magic with flowers. You are really blessed to have a garden like that. If you could include the names of all the flowers that you use in the arrangements in post itself, it would be great. I had to dig down (no complaints as I really enjoyed it) to last yr's post to read the names. Do you know if I can grow protea as an annual in zone 7A-7B? I have been tryin to google it and didn't really find anything useful. Also is it in the same family as the yellow straw flower that we see in the hill stations in South India?

    1. Vidya,
      I don't know whether you can grow proteas in your area. All these flowers are Australian native, thrives in Southern California weather. I you can always grow them as container plants, bringing them indoors during winter months. Thanks for the visit. Good luck with your search.

  12. Wow, your flowers from your garden are so sweet! I love your pretty little vase, too.
