I wanted it to look like fireworks, because I celebrate: 1 year on 500 px!
Paul was here first and had a tough time persuading me to also upload, now I'm glad I did, it's been good for me, opened up many more venues.
To be AWESOME lets you make portfolios that are superb and work beautifully on Ipads...
The Leucospermum 'Veldfire'(left) and Leucospermum cordifolium (right) are proteas and are indigenous to South Africa.
Some of the most spectacular species in the diverse vegetation are the proteas of the Cape region .
Protea is both the botanical name and the English common name of a genus of flowering plants, sometimes also called sugarbushes (SUIKERBOSSIE).
It is the stiff protruding styles of the flowers which are the source of the common name "pincushion" for this genus.
The genus Protea was named in 1735 by Carolus Linnaeus after the Greek god Proteus who could change his form at will, because proteas have such different forms.
Why not take a few minutes, click on the links, sit back and relax, enjoy the beauty, you'll feel replenished?
