KIng Protea

King Protea Posted by Hello
I know I should be writing about my textile inspirations, but the King Protea is flowering at the moment- they are such amazing sculptural flowers.We have quite a lot of proteas in the garden but this one sets the largest flowers. Think medium cake mixing bowl and you can imagine the size of the flower.I need to do some dyeing but some bees have decided to use the space under my dyeing table as a most excellent place for forming a hive, and as we are waiting for the wax forms to come ,to put in the real hives and hopefully entice them into producing us some honey, we dare not move them or agrravate them- so no dyeing.
